TRADE: Sea Dogs acquire Flyers prospect Matteo Mann
SAINT JOHN – The Saint John Sea Dogs have acquired Philadelphia Flyers prospect Matteo Mann from the Chicoutimi Sagueneens, the team announced on Thursday. In return, Chicoutimi receives their own second-round pick in 2024 and a third-round pick in 2026.
“It’s not everyday an NHL prospect with Matteo’s package becomes available,” said Sea Dogs general manager Anthony Stella. “We feel this trade makes us tougher to play against, it makes us more competitive and most importantly gives us a better chance at winning hockey games.”
Mann, a six-foot-six, 222-pound defenceman, was selected by the Flyers in the seventh round of the 2023 NHL Draft. The Sackville, New Brunswick native spent the past three seasons with the Sagueneens registering three goals and 14 assists.
