The latest edition of the BMO CHL MasterCard Top 10 Rankings were released earlier today with the Sea Dogs sitting on top once again. Other Quebec Major Junior Hockey League teams to crack the prestigious list were the Montreal Juniors at No. 4, Quebec Remparts at No. 5, and the Lewiston MAINEiacs at No. 10. The Drummondville Voltigeurs were an honourable mention.
It was a light seven days for the Sea Dogs compared to last week. Saint John played two games at Centre 200 in Sydney, defeating the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles both times by a combined score of 8-3.
On Friday, the Dogs beat the Eagles rather easily by score of 6-2. On Saturday, the QMJHL’s best club had a little more trouble, needing a last second goal by Stephen MacAulay to earn a 2-1 regulation victory.
Saint John now enters the holiday break and do not play until December 28 in Charlottetown.
The weekly rankings of the CHL’s Top 10 teams are selected by a panel of National Hockey League scouts.
