Brent Andrews used a weekend road trip to deliver on the promise that made him a first-round pick.

The 17-year-old centre scored five times as the Halifax Mooseheads split a pair of games in New Brunswick, blasting the Bathurst Titan 9-3 on Friday for their first win of the season and losing 5-2 to the Saint John Sea Dogs on Saturday.

Andrews, who was taken 15th overall in 2009, exploded for four goals in Friday’s win in the first multi-point game of his career. He had seven goals all season as a rookie in 2009-10.

“It was really important for him and it was really important for our team,” said Mooseheads head coach and general manager Cam Russell.

“He’s the type of player who can play an all-around game ... but it’s nice to see the goals start to go in for him too because that’s part of what he has to bring for us to have success.”

Anthony Terenzio started both games, the first of his QMJHL career, and stopped 45 of 53 shots.

Blueliner Konrad Abeltshauser returned to the team on Saturday after being away at NHL training camp with the San Jose Sharks.
