New, comment

Two more potential college hockey players opted to play major junior this past week.

Top 2013 NHL Draft selections Jonathan Drouin and Nathan MacKinnon were teammates in Halifax last season.

Windham, New Hampshire prospects Connor and Danny Moynihan have signed with the Halifax Mooseheads of the QMJHL. The move north of the border to play major junior eliminates any possibility of the brothers playing college hockey.

Danny is a '95 while younger brother Connor is a '97. Most observers believe Connor is the better prospect of the two. The younger Moynihan stands tall at six-feet-three and put up nearly a point per game in the EJHL last season as a 15 year-old. Connor was drafted in the fifth round of this year's QMJHL Draft. The Des Moines Buccaneers owned his USHL rights.
