HALIFAX - Tomas Knotek wasted no time making an impact in his return to the Halifax Mooseheads lineup.

Knotek, playing his first game of the season after missing the previous 10 with a groin injury, added an assist on Logan McMillan's insurance goal with 48 seconds left as the Mooseheads (3-8-0-0) halted a five-game losing streak. The 18-year-old native of Kladno, Czech Republic led Halifax in scoring as a rookie last season with 66 points (22 goals, 44 assists) in 69 games.

Ned O'Brien and Charles Bety added first-period goals in the Halifax victory.

Alexi Pianosi and Philip-Michael-Devos countered for the Tigres (5-7-0-0), who have dropped three in a row.

Mark Yetman earned the win for the Mooseheads with a 34-save performance.

Kevin Poulin stopped 28 shots in defeat for Victoriaville.
