Former Halifax Mooseheads goaltender Zach Fucale poses for a portrait after being selected by the Montreal Canadiens during the 2013 NHL Draft at the Prudential Center on June 30, 2013 in Newark, New Jersey.
Fucale was picked 36th overall at the NHL draft in June from the Memorial Cup champion Halifax Mooseheads, where he is expected to return after participating in the Canadiens training camp.
The 18-year-old from Rosemere, Que., went 45-5-3 with the powerhouse Mooseheads last season and went 16-1 in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League playoffs.
“Honoured! What a day,” Fucale wrote on Twitter.
