Draft Day Part 3 - A Love Lost Before It Began

God Dammit - “The Moncton Wildcats take Dartmouth native and Pictou County Weeks Crushers junior A forward Tyler Noseworthy with the 93rd overall selection. Noseworthy is a hard-hitting forward who was believed to be of some interest to the Mooseheads.”

The hockey Gods giveth (Nadeau in the East) and they taketh away (Noseworthy to the Wildcats). It is our own damn fault for not getting him with our 4th round pick. *Shanks Patenaude*

Dear Tyler
It was over before it began. I am sad that we couldn’t make it work out between us. I am sure next year I will see you in the Moncton lineup and you will be “BIG HITTIN” all over the place, while the guy we took in the 4th round will not report to the team. I can see it now – Halifax vs Moncton, and our own BigHits-E.L.XVI will be skating around with the puck, just whistling while he works, and along you will come - BAM. Just don’t hit Mighty Whitey, he has concussion problems.

Kisses to keep you warm on your travels


Mooseheads picks (from Wuest):

The Mooseheads gave up their 123rd overall pick and a 2009 selection for the 101st pick. They use the pick on defenceman Ryan Matheson from the Central Ice Pack in Newfoundland. He's a 5-foot-10, 157-pound centre.

Uhhhh What is that Wuest? confusing! Is he a Centre or a defenseman? Why are we picking so many little guys? Well if I can’t have another Quebecois or Noseworthy at least they are getting me a new Newf.

Alex MacDonald from the Moncton Flyers midget AAA team. He's a 6-foot-3, 182-pound defenceman who was ranked 73rd overall by Central Scouting. - Finally a big kid!!!

Oh my – A GOALIE
The Mooseheads grab Cole Harbour McCain goaltender Kody Blois. He's a 5-foot-10, 170-pounder who helped the squad to an Atlantic major midget title.

Andrew O'Leary, a 6-foot, 180-pound winger who plays for Shattuck St. Mary's, a U.S. prep school. He is from Minnesota.

Andrew Morrison is a 5-foot-10, 172-pound defenceman from South Shore major midgets taken with the 15th pick of the 11th round.

William Cloutier, a 5-foot-11 defenceman from Quebec.

We should now officially change our team name to the Halifax Andrews. We now have at least 3 Andrews, 2 Alexes, and 2 Gabriels. Lord only knows how many more Andrews I will find if I dig into our protected list (Yes, I remember you Andrew Bodnarchuk) .



Former Dartmouth Subways captain and Halifax native Alexi Pianosi was just traded from the Moncton Wildcats to the Victoriaville Tigres for second- and fifth-round picks in 2010.

The Halifax Mooseheads have acquired 19-year-old right-winger Linden Bahm from the Victoriaville Tigres for a sixth-round pick in 2009. Bahm, a 6-foot, 188-pounder, had nine goals and nine assists in 67 games last season.

Cape Breton deals European goaltender Marek Benda to the Baie-Comeau Drakkar for draft picks. - WEIRD!!! BC have two very good, young, NHL draft eligible goalies. What do they want Benda for?


140. Nicholas Spear (a goalie)
158. Nicolas Larocque-Marcoux.
171. Raphaël Girard (a goalie)
12th round . Stephen Walker

102. Goaltender Alex Newman. He will probably move to CB to back up Roy and become awesome – like all of their goalies.
138. Olivier Bibeau
143. Neil Coombs

156. Jean-Sebastien Fournier
173. Steven Brazil
