REGULAR SEASON SUMMARY
The Halifax Mooseheads were narrowly edged out for the Maritime Division title by the Acadie-Bathurst Titan. The Mooseheads’ .500 record in the final 10-game stretch not only cost them the division crown, but also relegated Halifax to a fourth-place finish overall. Jim Midgley’s squad nonetheless wrapped up the regular season with a 43-18-7 record, the fifth-best mark in franchise history in terms of points (93). Their hottest stretch of the season came when they racked up eight straight wins from December 30 through January 13. Led by their duo of European snipers Otto Somppi and Filip Zadina, the Mooseheads’ offence ranked third in the QMJHL with 270 goals scored. Somppi and Zadina accounted for much of that total with their team-leading totals of 83 and 82 points, respectively. Halifax was also the only club in the league with an impressive seven 20-plus goal scorers in 2017-18. Between the pipes, it was a bit of game of musical chairs that saw Blade Mann-Dixon (23 victories) and Alexis Gravel (20 victories) each crack the 20-win mark to help lead the Mooseheads to the No. 10 spot in goals against (223 goals). On special teams, Halifax ranked fifth in penalty killing and 11th on the power play.
