Marcel Barinka was selected by the Halifax Mooseheads in the 2nd round of the CHL 2018 Import draft. The 17 year old Czech is a skilled forward who finished 1st in team scoring at the Gretzky Hlinka Cup hosted by Hockey Canada. He looked very comfortable in his first game at the Mooseheads training camp at the Dartmouth 4 Pad and was interviewed by John Moore after his first skate as a Moosehead.
