Halifax Mooseheads forward Logan Crosby celebrated a championship game victory with his Canada Black teammates on Wednesday night in Ottawa at the U17 Capital City Challenge. Crosby’s squad scored the tying goal with four seconds remaining in regulation before grabbing a 5-4 overtime win versus Canada Red to win the tournament.
The Salt Springs, NS native scored three goals during the event which included the top U17 players from across the country along with Canada’s National Women’s team. Crosby, who doesn’t turn 16 until later this month, scored goals in three separate games as Team Black went undefeated with a perfect 5-and-0 record.
Canada White, featuring fellow Mooseheads rookies Mathieu Cataford and Dylan MacKinnon, won the third place game earlier in the day with a 6-1 victory over the National Women’s Team. Cataford tied for fourth in scoring at the Capital City Challenge with seven points on three goals and four assists while MacKinnon went scoreless with six penalty minutes during the event.
The three players will rejoin the Mooseheads in Victoriaville on Friday night when the Herd face-off with the Tigres to begin a three-game weekend in Quebec. Halifax will also visit Shawinigan on Saturday and the Remparts on Sunday in Quebec City.
The next home games for Halifax are set for Thursday, December 9th vs Tyler Peddle and the Drummondville Voltigeurs and Saturday, December 11th vs the reigning President Cup Champion Victoriaville Tigres. Tickets are on sale now at TicketAtlantic.com.
