As first reported by RDS reporter Stephane Leroux, the Halifax Mooseheads are on the brink of the blockbuster trade of the season; one that hasn’t even started yet.
The world of Twitter exploded after the rumours started and the prospect of landing ‘The Next Sidney Crosby’ has set Moose Country on fire.
Baie-Comeau Drakkar, the team that picked MacKinnon first overall in this years QMJHL entry draft, announced a press conference for Wednesday.
If the reports are true, it would appear that a package of picks and players will go to the Drakkar while the Mooseheads will have a Franchise player that will go a long way to massage the wounds fans have suffered over the last three years.
The trade would be the second big move that the Mooseheads have pulled off in the last year, successfully bringing young Czech forward Marty Frk to Moose Country last summer.
