The Halifax Mooseheads will open their training camp August 17th at Cole Harbour Place. Matthew Wuest of the Metro Halifax has recently had a couple nice updates from the summer.
Moose Hoping to add Euro Talent to the Herd
Frk, who the Mooseheads selected third overall in last month’s Canadian Hockey League import draft, and Octagon Hockey representative Allan Walsh are still working on cutting through red tape to allow the skilled left-winger to play in the QMJHL.
The Mooseheads’ scouts compare Frk’s style to that of Cam Neely, while various scouting services consider him an early first-round candidate for the 2012 NHL draft.
Brent Andrew looks to crack National squad
While his Halifax Mooseheads teammates are home enjoying their summer, Brent Andrews will sweat it out at one of the most important tryout camps of his young career.
The 17-year-old centre leaves next week for Hockey Canada’s tryout camp for their summer under-18 team that will compete at the Ivan Hlinka memorial tournament in Slovakia and the Czech Republic in August.
