The Halifax media is reporting that Jonathan Drouin, the third overall pick in the 2013 NHL Draft by the Tampa Bay Lightning, will make his Halifax Mooseheads season debut tomorrow night at Harbour Station against the Sea Dogs.
And, yes, Drouin will play in Halifax's road game vs. Saint John tomorrow.

So that’s great.
Drouin recorded 41 goals and 64 assists in just 49 games with the Mooseheads last season. Meanwhile, the Sea Dogs are currently averaging the most shots against per game in the league this year (37.97) and three of their seven healthy defensemen are rookies.
Halifax is off to a bit of shaky start and sit 14th overall in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League standings with a 3-4 record. The Sea Dogs are 10th with a 3-2-0-1 record.
