A rough couple of weeks for the Halifax Mooseheads, dropping down to second in the CHL and a couple of tough games, capped off with an 8 – 5 loss to the Moncton Wildcats on National Television.
The biggest concern for the team is a lower body injury to star Nathan MacKInnon, the Cole Harbour native is expected to miss up to two weeks.
Sportstream Moose 3 Stars of the Week
3rd Star – Jonathan Drouin [2 Goals, 2 Assists]
The Quebec native opened the scoring against Rimouski and had picked up two goals and 2 assists over the week, he also showed some physicality throwing the body against Moncton.
2nd Star – MacKenzie Weegar [3 Assists, +2 plus/minus]
Weegar has continued to develop this season and has grown into a great two-way forward, dangerous on the rush and picked up three assists plus the shootout winner against the Oceanic. He capped the week with a shootout winner against Rimouski.
1st Star – Martin Frk [2 Goals, 3 Assists, NO Penalty Minutes]
Martin Frk was crucial on the last two goals against the Oceanic, scoring the 4th goal and setting up MacKinnon on the winner. The Czech forward has shown better discipline recently, staying out of the box both games this week.
