vs CHA

It’s been one of the longest off-seasons that your Halifax Mooseheads have had in the lest few years but it is finally over and the 2015-16 regular season is upon us. The year begins with Halifax taking on the Charlottetown Islanders on the island tonight. The Mooseheads are still in the midst of a rebuild, evident by the amount of rookies again on the team this season. Last season, the challenge was on defense with 6 out of the 8 players playing in their first year in the QMJHL. This year, there’s 6 new faces on the forward lines and only two in the back end. Though the Herd may be young, they have some scoring punch waiting to explode. Halifax will be without Timo Meier, Cody Donaghey and Cavan Fitzgerald who will all be at NHL camps.
