Hailfax Training Camp & Pre-Season Info

Press Release

The Halifax Mooseheads announced their training camp details and pre-season information this afternoon for their 19th season in Moose Country.

The Mooseheads will welcome close to 30 rookies to Cole Harbour Place on Wednesday August 15th to Sunday, August 19th.  The Mooseheads rookies will battle the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles rookies in two pre-season games, Saturday August 18th at the Halifax Forum and Sunday, August 19th at Cape Breton University.  The Mooseheads veterans will report to Camp Monday, August 20th.   There will be no training camp intra-squad games this season.

“We have a solid crop of rookies coming to training camp this year” stated Cam Russell, Mooseheads General Manager.  “Even though we have a large number of veterans returning to this year’s Club, we still expect to have one of our most competitive training camps in several seasons”.

The Mooseheads will play 8 pre-season games in total, including a matchup with the Moncton Wildcats on Saturday, August 25th at Acadia Arena in Wolfville.

“We’re excited to play a game in Wolfville” stated Brian Urquhart, Mooseheads VP Business Operations.  “We’re fortunate to have a lot of Mooseheads fans who travel to the Metro Centre from the Valley for each home game, so it’s nice to be able to bring the Mooseheads to their backyard for a change”.

Tickets for all Mooseheads pre-season home games go on sale this Wednesday, August 1st.  Tickets for the 3 pre-season games at the Halifax Forum will be on sale for $7 each, or all 3 games for $15, at Antlers Merchandise Store at the Halifax Metro Centre or at the Halifax Forum Box Office.
