VIDEO: Halifax Mooseheads’ Nathan MacKinnon NHL’s next star

The NHL can’t wait to snatch up Nathan MacKinnon. At 5-foot-11 the speedy center is in the running to go first overall in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.

At 17, MacKinnon has excelled both physically and mentally, making the Cole Harbour, N.S. native a force to be reckoned with in the Quebec League.  With 32 points in just 20 games, MacKinnon continues to prove why he is a face to watch and a name to remember.
