Halifax’s late round selections

The following is a rundown of the Halifax Mooseheads’ late-round picks in Saturday’s QMJHL draft. They are listed with comments from general manager Cam Russell and chief Atlantic scout Allie MacDonald.

6, 95. G Anthony Terenzio, 5-9, 160
Recommended to Russell by several NHL scouts … Product of renowned Shattuck-St. Mary’s prep school … Has NCAA options … The Mooseheads purposely didn’t take a goalie early knowing Terenzio would still be around later.

7, 109. F Ryan Davis, 5-7, 199
Dartmouth Subways major midget forward is built like a fire hydrant … “He doesn’t look like Tie Domi, but he plays like Tie Domi,” says MacDonald.

8, 127. F Alexandre Souligny, 5-11, 184
Should compete for a role-playing job at training camp … “He makes room for himself and his linemates along the boards,” says MacDonald.

10, 163. D Joshua Desmond, 5-10, 165
High-scoring defenceman from the Dartmouth Subways … “He’s very much involved in the play offensively and defensively,” says MacDonald.

11, 181. F Nicolas Dube, 5-10, 161
Another role-playing type … “When he jumps over the boards, he gives you an honest effort as soon as his skates hit the ice,” says MacDonald.

12, 199. F Luke Warner, 5-11, 174
Pictou County major midget product … “Full-time agitator,” says MacDonald. “When the whistle goes, he doesn’t get himself out of the scrum quickly.”

12, 211. D Kyle Kavanaugh, 5-11, 160
Might be a late-bloomer as a puck-moving blue-liner … “He played the quarterback role (with Cape Breton major midgets),” says MacDonald.

12, 214. F Mike Vecchione, 5-10, 170
High-scoring forward is a long-shot interested in playing NCAA at the University of New Hampshire … “He’s a very skilled, fast player,” says Russell.
