Mooseheads’ youth to play on world stage

The youngest members of the Halifax Mooseheads will get put to the test against their own age group over the holidays.

The youngest members of the Halifax Mooseheads will get put to the test against their own age group over the holidays.

Standout 16-year-olds Luca Ciampini, Andrew Ryan and Simon Desmarais will compete at the world under-17 challenge from Dec. 29 to Jan. 4 in Winnipeg and Portage la Prairie, Man.

Ciampini, the Mooseheads’ second overall pick in last June’s draft, and Desmarais, the 28th overall pick, will play for Quebec. Ryan, selected 19th overall, will be a key forward for Team Atlantic.

“I think they’re going to find it nice not playing against guys playing four years older than them,” said Mooseheads head coach Bobby Smith.

The Mooseheads, who will be short-staffed over the holidays with their key youngsters away, play twice before the new year, visiting the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles on Dec. 28 and hosting them on Dec. 30 at 7 p.m.

They’re 15th in the QMJHL with a 13-23-0-1 record.
