Halifax Mooseheads forward Philippe Gadoury.
Philippe Gadoury finally made his return to the Halifax Mooseheads lineup, and showed no worse for wear on Sunday afternoon.
Sidelined with a concussion since Jan. 25, the 20-year-old forward scored a pair of goals to lead the Herd to a 6-0 victory over the Bathurst Titan before an audience of just 340 at Centre régional K.C. Irving.
Rejoining the team’s top line alongside Nikolaj Ehlers and Jonathan Drouin, Gadoury got the ball rolling for the Herd, scoring just over six minutes into the contest.
The trio would combine for six points.
The Mooseheads outshot Bathurst 34-17, scoring four times in the second period and one more in the final frame.
Ehlers and Drouin each had a goal and an assist, while Danny Moynihan and Luca Ciampini rounded out the scoring for the Herd.
Gadoury now has seven goals and three assists in nine games with the Mooseheads.
Zachary Fucale earned the shutout for his 27th win of the season.
With their third win a row, the Mooseheads improve to 37-18-0-3.
