Wildcats roster down to 24 after players are reassigned
After a very tight game against the Screaming Eagles last night, Cape Breton handed Moncton their first loss of the pre-season. Following a scoreless opening 20 minutes, Jonathan Aspirot got the Cats on the board first on a feed from Jacob Hudson midway through the second. Cape Breton would end up taking a 2-1 lead and with time winding down, Moncton forward Jeremy McKenna, netted a power play goal to tie the game and send it to overtime. Cape Breton would score first in the extra frame, making the final 3-2. After the loss last night, Moncton now holds a 5-0-1 pre-season record.
