The Halifax Mooseheads made prized trade-deadline acquisition Brad Marchand a healthy scratch for Thursday's Game 4 of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League semifinals against Gatineau Olympiques.
The 19-year-old forward, acquired because of his big-game resume and ability to elevate his play in clutch situations, will sit out the Mooseheads’ most important game of the season, down 3-0 to Gatineau in the best-of-seven series.
Marchand, a Hammonds Plains native and two-time world-junior gold-medallist, has just one assist and is a minus-2 in three games this series. He didn't record a shot in a 6-1 loss in Game 3.
