Cam Russell is in no rush to move a goaltender.
Although the Halifax Mooseheads general manager said yesterday he wouldn’t rule out dealing a stopper before training camp in August, he has no problem with having incumbents Peter Delmas and Mathieu Corbeil report to camp along with rookie Anthony Terenzio.
Terenzio, 17, is expected to be ready for QMJHL duty. That means either Delmas, 20, or Corbeil, 19, will be traded. The other will get the starting job.
“Our plan right now is to bring all three of those guys in and get a read on where everybody is and make a decision on what we’re going to do,” Russell said.
Delmas can be traded at any time because he is an over-ager. Corbeil can only be moved during the QMJHL trade window, which starts on Aug. 1 and runs until late that month.
The Mooseheads are completely sold on Terenzio’s readiness for the Q after selecting him in the sixth round (95th overall) in the draft.
He likely wasn’t picked sooner because he had NCAA options after posting a 15-2-2 record along with a 2.41 goals-against average with Shattuck-St. Mary’s prep school.
“We know the kid can play,” Russell said. “I think he’s going to be a big part of our team for a long time.”
