Flynn leaves position with Sea Dogs


Danny Flynn has left his head coach position with the Saint John Sea Dogs to pursue other opportunities, the team announced on Friday July 28, 2017.

The native of Dartmouth, N.S., spent two seasons behind the Sea Dogs bench, helping them win the President’s Cup this past season and a trip to semi-finals at the Memorial Cup in Windsor, Ont.

In a press release, Flynn said he felt it was the right time to move on.

“It was great to be part of two outstanding seasons. I really enjoyed my time with the team. Saint John is a great hockey city and a great community. I want to thank the Sea Dogs for giving me and my family the opportunity to be a part of it.”

In the same release, Sea Dogs President and General Manager Trevor Georgie said the team was looking forward to Flynn returning for a third season but support his decision.

“We thank him and wish him the very best in the next stage of his career.”

The Sea Dogs have already begun their search for a new head coach.
