Sea Dogs to open up new season VS NB rivals

The 2011 Memorial cup champions have barely had time to let it all sink in .. And they know who they will open there 2011-12 season against.

On Thursday, September 8th 2011 Harbour Station will most likely be sold out, not because of the sea dogs raising there championship banners because the team has announced it will not be doing that until October 29th, The game is against one of the most hated teams in Sea Dog fans eyes.

If you have not already figured it out, The first QMJHL game of the season will be another chapter of the "Battle of New Brunswick". Saint John VS Moncton. Dogs VS Cats. Use any term you want to, but one thing is for sure. The first battle of the year between the two most recent QMJHL champions will be nothing short of fantastic.

Although no championship banners will fly, The team has announced there will be a pre-game ceremony allowing fans to get one last look at the presidents and memorial cup before they have to send them back to there league offices. Fans will also be able to get there photo taken with both of the cups.

Last year was another year of firsts for the newest New Brunswick based QMJHL team, and there hoping this will be a year of seconds ...

The Sea Dogs secured the title with Saturdays 8-0 thumping of the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles - With the crown they become the only team outside of quebec to win back to back regular season championships and only the 7th team to do it in general.
