Now that the regular season is over, I will be awarding my overall Top Herd player award. This season I decided not to do a poll as there was one clear winner in my opinion.
And the winner is….
In just his rookie season, Alexis Gravel showed that the Halifax Mooseheads made the right decision selecting him in the second round of the QMJHL draft. Gravel was 5th in the league in minutes played and first among rookies with 2628 minutes. Alexis was in the top 20 during the regular season for save percentage. He’ll be the backbone for the Herd over the next few years.
