Saint John Sea Dogs

Irving Oil is proud to be a founding partner of the Saint John Sea Dogs since the team’s introduction to the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) in 2005. Over the years, we’ve partnered with the Sea Dogs on many special programs to bring younger players and fans closer to the action.

The Irving Oil Team Player Program

The Irving Oil Team Player program promotes the positive values of minor hockey and the importance of being a team player, both on and off the ice. The object of the program is to reward the unsung heroes who work hard to help their team and to promote that hard work is an important skill unto itself – just like learning to be a good skater, or making a big save.

The Irving Oil Team Player program is open to all levels of minor hockey. Each team that registers will receive:

A Team Player jersey – a replica Sea Dogs jersey that identifies the player as being the Team Player award winner for the week.

Team Player certificates as a keepsake for each of the recipients.

Each team will be eligible to attend a Team Player party with the entire Sea Dogs team at the end of the season!

To register for the Irving Oil Team Player program, contact Shanna Aker at the Saint John Sea Dogs for an application form at

Irving Oil Minor Hockey Challenge

During 14 intermissions this season, Atom AA and Peewee AA player from the Southern New Brunswick Minor Hockey Associations will compete in Fastest Skater, Break Away and Goal tending Competition. These players will be selected by their coaches and will participate in an elimination process over the season with the winners taking home great prizes for their team and themselves compliments of Irving Oil.

Irving Oil 7th Player Program

The Irving Oil 7th Player Program gives one lucky Novice or Atom minor hockey player the chance to skate to centre ice with the Sea Dogs starting lineup. At each home game, the Irving Oil 7th Player will skate through the Sea Dogs entrance with his or her favourite player and stand at centre ice for the singing of the National Anthem. Each minor hockey player that participates in the program will receive an Irving Oil 7th Player Sea Dogs replica jersey, 4 tickets to the game, and a photo of themselves with their favourite Sea Dog.
