He a Drouin pretty much single-handedly won the game for Halifax tonight. They are something else.

Edit: spoke too soon. Zdrahal ties it up with 15 seconds left.

4 primary assists for Mackinnon in a crazy 7-6 ot loss tonight.

Now tied for qmjhl scoring lead with 52 points.

IMO Mackinnon look a lot like Marian Gaborik. Offensively they're both good shooting and passing, but are more known for their speed and shot. And when I saw video of Mackinnon scoring at full speed, he really looked like Gaborik.

Except MacKinnon is much more physical and a center. Personally I think he got his own style more than being like anyone else.

Bump, why has MacKinnon fallen to #3 on the ISS rankings?

Because ISS is dumb. There's 0% chance that Nichushkin goes top 2; I don't think he'll even go top 5. He has nice tools, but seems to really lack hockey IQ and is at least 2 years away from coming to NA, if he comes over at all.

ISS doesn't go by draft order though right? They just rank the players without thinking of outside factors such as will he come over or is he NHL ready and what not.

Hey guys, any word when MacKinnon will be back in the lineup? (Or not?) Seems like he's been out quite some time.

Not sure on Mac... if anyone is interested: solid first period from rouyn-noranda. Darcy Ashley with some beautiful moves late in the period for hfx. drouin taking offensive zone face offs with frk behind him on the short side formation

He should be back after the Moose finish the current Quebec road trip I would think.

No word on Nate ... There's no urgency to get him back with the next 8 games meaning nothing ... I wouldn't be surprised to see him play 1 or 2 game leading up to the playoffs, but most would rather him sit and be well rested.

nope, not officially that I know of but off the record word is he is still sitting out for precautionary measures and may stay out 'till the playoffs. I cannot verify that though so take it how you wish... My 'source' is an ex-player who still has friends in theborganization anf this is what he said.

With three games left in the season (and a chance for Halifax to tie the league record for wins in a year should they win all three), MacKinnon will return to the Mooseheads lineup tonight against Cape Breton.

well considering they play Cape Breton the worst team in the league twice and Saint john's the third worst team in the league I would say they will probably blow them out and tie the record pretty easily.

MacKinnon scores his 29th goal of the season 35 seconds into his first game back after missing 14 games.

2g 2a in his return tonight. CB sucks but he doesn't seem to have missed a beat for how long he was out.

I dunno, he seemed less physical than usual for me. It's only one game tho so can't tell much. He actually had a vert strong game though. Some nice d-zone takeaways, way more shots on goal than average and produced well. I think his physical game will come back in time for playoffs and he's looking to he in great form. I know Drouin will be better in the playoffs but I have a feeling Mac will be too. He has a hit to prove now too.

Meh, he's okay I guess. I'd probably pick him in the 1-10 range.
