New jerseys, new coach and new attitude — the Saint John Sea Dogs are making the best of a fresh reset after a disappointing playoff implosion. On Monday, the Sea Dogs beat the Hamilton Bulldogs 5-3 at the TD Station, despite not playing a competitive game since their May 12 playoff exit.
The wait is almost over for William Villeneuve. The right-shot defenceman hasn't played since his Saint John Sea Dogs, who will host the Memorial Cup, lost in the opening round of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League playoffs way back on May 12.
The Charlottetown Islanders are one step closer to a berth in the 2022 Memorial Cup. The Islanders built up a big lead Monday then held on to defeat the host Sherbrooke Phoenix 4-3 to win their best-of-five semifinal series in four games and advance to the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League championship.
