SAINT JOHN: A Beaver Bank hockey player has knocked his first goal with his new team off the bucket list.

Cole Foston scored at the 7:23 mark of the third period on Wednesday night helping propel his Saint John Sea Dogs to a 5-4 win over the Acadie-Bathurst Titan. The goal made the score 4-3 at the time.

Foston was traded to the Sea Dogs by his hometown Halifax Mooseheads in training camp for a 2023 eighth round draft pick.

Liam Kidney of Enfield had his first two goals with his new team, the Titan, in the contest in a losing effort.

In seven games with the Sea Dogs, the hosts of the 2022 Memorial Cup, Foston has a goal and a helper and two penalty minutes.

He also is a plus-3 with five shots on goal during his playing time on the energy line for the Sea Dogs.

Saint John sits at 3-3-0-2 (won-loss-overtime loss-shootout loss) in eight games this year.
