Twelve players made the cut from rookie camp this year and will suit up for the Sea Dogs in September. Three of those players, Oliver Cooper, Sebastien Auger and Devon Oliver-Dares, saw significant time with the Sea Dogs during the team’s second President Cup-winning season.

Another familiar player, MacKenzie Brown, had three points in two preseason games for the Dogs. His two goals were both tallied with the man advantage. Brown played 13 games with the Sea Dogs in the 2011-12 season.

The young, new talent on the team will also include Saint John’s top five selections in the 2012 QMJHL entry draft.

Seventh-round selection Marcus Cuomo was the go-to faceoff man for the Sea Dogs and finished with a 72% success rate on the draws while Fredericton native Spencer Smallman had a team-high three assists in two contests.

September 8th will be the first game that fans can see the new faces on the ice at Harbour Station when the Sea Dogs take on the Moncton Wildcats at 7 PM. Tickets are available now from the Harbour Station box office, by calling 506-657-1234 or online at www.tickets.harbourstation.ca.
