See Pens Prospect Despres on NHL Network

The Saint John Sea Dogs of the QMJHL qualified for the Master Card Memorial Cup tournament to crown the champion of Canadian Major Junior Hockey by winning the Q’s Championship tourney last week.  The Sea Dogs have been on a lot of Penguins fans radars this season as our 1st round draft pick in 2009 Simon Despres plays for Saint John.  Despres will turn 20 over the summer which means this is likely his last season in the QMJHL before jumping to the AHL and Wilkes-Barre.  He is considered to have a legitimate chance of making the Penguins NHL roster out of camp.

The NHL Network will be televising the Memorial Cup for the fourth time and if you’d like to get a good look at Despres the first game is tonight at 7pm EST against the Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors, the host team.  The Sea Dogs will then faceoff against the OHL Champion Owen Sound Attack on May 23rd at 7:00pm ET and the WHL Champion Kootenay Ice on May 24th, again at 7pm EST.
