Bernard expected to return to Mooseheads lineup

The Halifax Mooseheads have good news and bad news on the injury front heading into the weekend.

The Halifax Mooseheads have good news and bad news on the injury front heading into the weekend.

Rookie right-winger Jess­yko Bernard, who has missed the past two games with a groin injury, is expected to return to the lineup, but top-scoring defenceman Justin Pender will remain on the shelf with a troublesome knee injury.

The Herd is also being cautious with rookie goalie Mathieu Corbeil. Sources say he’s been playing with a hand injury since Jan. 4, and while he’s healthy enough to be a backup, Mark Yetman will start until he’s better.

Recent acquisition Guillaume Pelletier (knee) remains sidelined and won’t be back for a few more weeks. The Mooseheads play the Bathurst Titan on Saturday at 7 p.m. and the Moncton Wildcats on Sunday at 4 p.m.

• Former Mooseheads goalie Pier-Olivier Pelletier has found a home in the university ranks. Pelletier, who had a disappointing year with the Mooseheads in 2007-08, was unable to land pro work and has joined the Waterloo Warriors.

• The last-place Val-d’Or Foreurs have claimed Alexi Pianosi off waivers from the Victoriaville Tigres. The 19-year-old defenceman from Halifax has a goal and 10 assists in 43 games.
