QMJHL Entry Draft set for Saturday


The Annual QMJHL Entry Draft will be held this Saturday in Shawinigan, QC. The Halifax Mooseheads are the owners of two first round draft picks and 18 picks overall in the 14 rounds.

General Manager Cam Russell has made a splash in each of the last two drafts by selecting Benoit-Olivier Groulx first overall in 2016 and immediately making a trade with Baie-Comeau for the second pick where he chose Jared McIsaac. That was the first time in league history that a team had the first two picks in a draft. Last year after taking the highly touted Xavier Parent with the fourth overall pick Russell made another deal, this time with Moncton to land the 13th overall selection which he used on Justin Barron.

On Saturday the Mooseheads will be 12th on the board with a pick that was secured from Rimouski in the Jordan Lepage trade. The pick originally belonged to Rouyn-Noranda and was actually part of seven trades before finally settling with Halifax. The Herd also own the 16th overall pick and will have multiple picks in the third, fifth, eighth and ninth rounds.
