Ashley

Tough Weekend Ahead for Herd

Desjardins may help fill the void left by injuries

With the biggest concussion story in hockey coming to an abrupt end Monday night, the injury depleted Mooseheads are still battling a few concussion problems of their own.

On their recent  trip to Quebec, the Mooseheads picked up four out of six possible points in just three nights, however, many are wondering whether or not the high number of injuries will slow down the Moose.

An injury depleted Herd face a tough weekend ahead, playing three games in four days and will have to do it without a number of key players in the lineup.

Both Martin Frk and Anthony Terenzio are at least a few weeks away from a chance back in the lineup, while Steve Gillard, Trey Lewis and Darcy Ashley have been experiencing ‘concussion like’ symptoms.

Ashley, the teams second in scoring, leaves fans hoping the return of Andrew Ryan will help fill the void. Ryan returned last after missing 22 games with a broken Ankle and picked up his first goal and assist of the season.

After hosting the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles on Thursday, they play Lower Sackville native Ben Duffy and the PEI Rockets the next night, before scurrying off to Moncton for a 4pm puck drop on Sunday.

All three teams are behind them in the rankings, with the PEI Rockets currently sitting at the bottom of the QMJHL with just six wins this season.
