Halifax Mooseheads play-by-play man John Moore tweeted this interesting tidbit of information this evening.
Cam Russell & Mike Kelly (SJ) continue to discuss possible deal for Halifax's 1st Rd pick.— John Moore (@rinkrant) June 9, 2012
The Mooseheads currently have 15th overall pick in tomorrow's Quebec Major Junior Hockey League Entry Draft.
Halifax is going for it this year and the Sea Dogs have some veterans they can unload. The two teams talking only makes since.
With Halifax’s 20-year situation nearly sorted out, you have to wonder if the Moose are going to try and go after Ryan Tesink, an experienced forward with some skill and sandpaper. He would be - and has proven to be - a key member to a contending team.
The Chronicle Herald’s Willy Palov brought up Tesink in his live blog today when asked what the Moose may try to do to replace graduated captain Cameron Critchlow.
“They are trying to find a Critchlow replacement,” Palov wrote. “My feeling is the player they are most interested in is Ryan Tesink from Saint John. The price would be quite high for him, though.”
If the Sea Dogs do pull off a deal for this pick, that would give them three first round selections tomorrow.
