The QMJHL Entry Draft on Saturday, June 3rd in Saint John is quickly approaching with your Halifax Mooseheads holding the fourth overall pick. Additionally the team has the 23rd and 41st overall selections giving the Mooseheads a trio of picks in the top 50.
With that in mind HalifaxMooseheads.ca is taking a look at some of the top prospects available.
Arlo Merritt is a product of the Halifax Hawks Major Bantam program and spent the first year of his Midget eligibility as a forward with Kimball Union Academy Prep School in New Hampshire. At 6-foot-2 and 175 pounds, scouts love his size and say he has all of the necessary tools to become a power forward in the QMJHL. He’s considered to have raw talent with good presence around the net although Merritt will need to continue to improve on his skating and effort away from the puck. Central Scouting has him ranked 13th overall. He scored five goals and six assists in 33 games with Kimball Union while picking up two goals and one assist with Team Nova Scotia at the Gatorade Frost Excellence Challenge.
