Moose Open Preseason with Dub
The two appeared to create chances throughout the game and MacKinnon’s pace seemed to be too much for a young Cape Breton defense. Having seven returning rearguards, Cape Breton was likely using this first preseason game to figure out who was worth giving a further look.
With a young defensive core combined with only a sprinkling of veterans up front, the Screaming Eagles fail to generate much offense.The Mooseheads started rookie goaltender Zachary Fucale, whom they selected with the 11th pick of this year’s Q draft. Despite not seeing a great deal of action, Fucale seemed very composed in the net and posting a shutout through his period and a half of work. Anthony Terenzio finished the second half of the game.
In addition to Frk, Trey Lewis, Ryan Falkenham added powerplay markers for the Mooseheads and Matt Boudreau added a shorthanded empty netter to put the game away.
Jonathan Béland had the lone goal for the Eagles.
Halifax and Cape Breton will close out this preseason home-and-home tomorrow.
