Ottawa Senators defenceman Thomas Chabot will be inducted into the Saint John Sea Dogs Hall of Fame.

Chabot is one of three people who will be inducted as part of the Class of 2023, the team announced Tuesday.

“It’s an honour for me because Saint John is where it all started,” said Chabot.

“I loved every minute that I spent playing and living there, I met great people along the way and created friendships that will last a lifetime.

Chabot, an NHL star and alternate captain with the Ottawa Senators, played his entire junior hockey career with the Sea Dogs.

The Quebec native was drafted by the team in 2013 and amassed 42 goals and 198 points in 242 games.

Chabot was named CHL Defenseman of the Year, QMJHL Defenseman of the Year, and QMJHL Personality of the Year in 2017.

That same year, he was recognized as the QMJHL Playoffs’ MVP with 23 points in 18 playoff games, en route to winning the 2017 President Cup.

Chabot is the Sea Dogs’ second all-time leader in both regular season points and playoff points by a defenceman.

“There are so many deserving alumni, but Thomas’ impact on the franchise is undeniable and we wanted to honour him,” said Sea Dogs president and general manager Trevor Georgie.

Chabot was drafted by the Ottawa Senators in the first round of the 2015 NHL Draft. In six seasons, he has scored 50 goals and 214 points in 357 games played.

On the international stage, he has won silver at two IIHF Men’s World Championships, including once as the captain of Team Canada in 2022.

Joining Chabot in the Sea Dogs Hall of Fame this year are former head coach Gerard Gallant and former head coach and general manager Mike Kelly.

All three will be inducted during the Sea Dogs Hall of Fame weekend from June 23 to 25.

Current members of the hall of fame include Calgary Flames forward Jonathan Huberdeau and captain of the 2011 Memorial Cup team Mike Thomas.
