SEA DOGS SIGN D TYLER HUNGERBUHLER
SAINT JOHN – The Saint John Sea Dogs have signed defenceman Tyler Hungerbuhler as a free agent.
The 17-year-old from Rosemere, Quebec, has five goals and 15 points in 30 games in his first season with the Montreal-Nord Arctic of the Ligue de Hockey Junior AAA du Quebec (LHJAAAQ).
Listed at 6’3″ and 183 lbs., Hungerbuhler attended training camp with the Sea Dogs. He did not appear in any preseason games.
“We’re very happy to have Tyler commit to the Sea Dogs,” said Sea Dogs President and General Manager Trevor Georgie. “We got to see him for a couple of days in training camp and he impressed us. He’s a right-handed shot and gives us another young option on the blueline.”
Saint John’s next game is Saturday, January 6th, at 7 p.m. against the Halifax Mooseheads at Harbour Station. Tickets are available at the Harbour Station Box Office and online. Buy before the day of the game and SAVE!
