NHL prospect Jonathan Drouin scored and added two assists as the Halifax Mooseheads got past the Acadie-Bathurst Titan 5-2 in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action on Monday.

Drouin's three points gives him 101 on the season and puts him into a three-way tie with Josh Currie and Ben Duffy for the league's scoring lead. Drouin now has 40 goals in 46 games this season.

Martin Frk scored twice for the Mooseheads (55-6-4), who have picked up at least one point in 14 straight games to clinch.

Stefan Fournier and Andrew Ryan, while shorthanded, also scored for Halifax, while Zachary Fucale made 27 saves.

The Mooseheads were without forward Nathan MacKinnon, who sat out with an injury. MacKinnon has 28 goals and 69 points in 41 games.

Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.
