Halifax Mooseheads right winger Darcy Ashley of Brooklyn, P.E.I., celebrates a goal against the London Knights during the first period of Memorial Cup action in Saskatoon, Sask., on Tuesday.
Veteran Halifax Mooseheads forward Darcy Ashley will be out of the lineup for four to six weeks with a finger injury, the club announced Monday.
Ashley, a 20-year-old Brooklyn native, underwent surgery Monday morning to repair a torn thumb ligament. The Mooseheads pre-season roster is now down to 28 players, including three goalies, 10 defencemen and 15 forwards. Mooseheads head coach Dominique Ducharme expects three or four more cuts to be made before the regular season lineup is finalized.
