Another former Halifax Mooseheads captain has chosen the Acadia Axemen for university hockey.

Graham Bona told Metro Halifax yesterday he is headed to Acadia, following in the footsteps of former Mooseheads greats Brandon Benedict and Robbie Sutherland.

The six-foot-three, 217-pound defenceman likes the Wolfville school’s kinesiology program and is excited to join an Axemen team that is hoping to contend for the next few seasons.

“It’s not going to be an easy step,” said Bona, who had six goals and 16 assists in 68 games last season for Halifax.

“They have a good team and they’re really building for the next couple of years. It’s definitely going to be tough to crack the lineup to start but I’m up for the challenge.”

The Spryfield native spent two and a half seasons with the Mooseheads and won a President Cup as a teammate of Sidney Crosby with Rimouski in 2005.
