There's been a lot of uncertainty in the QMJHL this season with the COVID-19 pandemic, but there's still a lot of excitement in Moose country.

That according to NEWS 95.7's Mooseheads' play-by-play commentator Garreth Macdonald who says it's been a very unusual season so far.

Most of the Mooseheads' roster has returned to the city and have begun their mandatory 14-day quarantine.

There's been some big changes since the team last played in the form of three big additions, including Stephen Davis, Senna Peeters and Attilio Biasca.

"This team is going to look a lot different than it did in the first half and it's a reason for optimism and excitement," said MacDonald. "They're adding two highly skilled players from Europe in Attilio Biasca and Senna Peeters. They just represented their countries in the World Juniors."

The Mooseheads had a record of 5-6-2-3 in the earlier part of the season.

According to MacDonald, a lot of the young players will will need to play a key role in the team's success.

The QMJHL aims to restart the regular season on Jan. 22 when Halifax is set to visit Moncton.
