The Saint John Sea Dogs announced a number of roster moves on Monday.
White Commits to Sea Dogs
Free Agent Forward James White has committed to the Sea Dogs. White, a 6”4 forward who turns 18 in September, put up 44 points in 52 games last season in the NOJHL.
“James is a physical specimen who brings tools that complement our forward group” said Sea Dogs President & General Manager Trevor Georgie. “He is still very raw but has great work ethic and off-ice commitment. He set records during our fitness testing and our coaches are going to work with him to develop his ability at this level.”
Free agent defenceman Patrick Musico (2000) and forward Christopher Duchesne (2001) have agreed to sign as affiliate players. Musico, a 6”2 offensive defenceman will be playing close by with St. Stephen Aces (MHL) for the 2018-2019 season. Duchesne who registered 53 points in 40 games with the Lac St-Louis Lions (QMAAA) last season got his first taste of QMJHL experience against Bathurst on Sunday.
Both 2018 5th round selection forward Alex O’Neill (2002) and 2018 6th round selection forward Charles-Antoine Dumont (2002) played in the Sunday’s exhibition game and are returning home. They are expected to be affiliate players with the team for this upcoming season.
