Sea Dogs reassign Dugan to Amherst


The goaltending shake-ups continue for the Saint John Sea Dogs. Today, the team announced that Bobby Dugan has been reassigned to the Amherst Ramblers of the Maritime Hockey League.

The move comes just five days after Saint John signed goaltender Alex Bishop from the OJHL’s Hamilton Red Wings. Dugan was a healthy scratch for both of the team’s games this past weekend in favor of Bishop, which ultimately resulted in the reassignment.

Dugan, 17, played in three games with Saint John this season earning a 1-1 record with a 3.35 goals against average and a save percentage of 0.892 per cent. The Seminole, Fla. native signed with the team after being a free agent invite to the Sea Dogs training camp this year.

With Sebastien Auger departing after this season, Sea Dogs General Manager Darrell Young has done a great job adding depth at the goaltender position. Saint John has three young netminders with lots of potential in Blade Mann-Dixon, Bishop, and Dugan, who are all eligible to return next season and should battle each other for the number one spot in training camp.
