With the addition of Frederic Aube, the Halifax Mooseheads had four overage players on the team. They announced this morning that they released Anthony Sorrentino who the Moose claimed off waivers last season. I’m not sure where he’ll end up but good luck to Tino and thank you for your time in Moose Country.

Halifax decided to pick up yet another 20 year old in a trade with the Charlottetown Islanders on Friday afternoon before the winter deadline ended. The Mooseheads traded their 5th round 2017 draft pick to Charlottetown in return for Jake Coughler. The now former Islander hails from St. Catherines, ON and has split his 3 and a half seasons in the QMJHL between the Gatineau Olympiques and Isles. Coughler has 20 goals and 32 points this season in 34 games played.

Welcome to Moose Country Jake, excited to see you play.

If you are doing the math, you’ll notice that that’s again 4 overagers. The Herd later announced that they traded Bradley Kennedy to the team they are playing this evening; the Moncton Wildcats. Halifax acquired Kennedy over the summer from the Islanders. In return, the Mooseheads received a 9th rounder in 2018. The Antigonish, NS native has been 4th in team scoring pretty much all year with 10 goals and 29 points.

Good luck to Brad with his new club and the rest of his career, than you for your time in Halifax.

 

So the Mooseheads will have a new look when they hit the ice tonight for their annual Teddy Bear Toss game.
