vs BLBTimo Meier is set to make is home debut as captain of your Halifax Mooseheads. After getting injured in his first game after being returned by the San Jose Sharks, Meier is back in the lineup tonight when the Herd host the Armada. The two teams met in Boisbriand five days ago with the home team in that contest coming out with the win. Halifax will be looking for a bit of revenge after a 4-2 defeat on the weekend. The Mooseheads should get some added offense with Timo back in the lineup which will hopefully help with scoring and winning.
