Sea Dogs Acquire Plamondon from Foreurs
SAINT JOHN - The Saint John Sea Dogs have acquired left winger Yohan Plamondon from the Val-d'Or Foreurs.
In exchange, the Sea Dogs sent a fifth-round pick in the 2019 QMJHL Entry Draft, previously acquired from the Gatineau Olympiques, to Val-d'Or.
Plamondon, 17, had eight goals and 13 points in 24 games this season for the Terrebonne Cobras of the Ligue de Hockey Junior AAA du Quebec (LHJAAAQ) this season. The native of Laval, Quebec, saw his Junior AAA rights traded to the St-Gabriel-de-Brandon Montagnards earlier this week.
Listed at 5'11" and 172 lbs., Plamondon registered four goals and seven points in 36 games with Val-d'Or last season. He was selected by the Foreurs in the third round (54th overall) of the 2016 QMJHL Entry Draft.
"We're very happy to acquire a player with his skill set and potential," said Sea Dogs Assistant General Manager and Head Scout Anthony Stella. "Yohan is a very serious and hard-working person. There will be tons of opportunity for him in the coming seasons."
The Sea Dogs' next game is Thursday, December 28th, at 7 p.m. against the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles at Harbour Station. Tickets are available at the Harbour Station Box Office and online . Buy before the day of the game and SAVE.
