Ben Higgins returning to Bearcats for upcoming season

The Truro Junior “A” Bearcats are pleased to announce the return to the lineup of Truro native, Ben Higgins.

He played the 2015-16 season with the Bearcats picking up 13 goals and 15 assists in his rookie year. For the last three years he was a reliable forward with the Halifax Mooseheads. Higgins came up through the Truro and Area Minor Program, advancing to the Truro Bearcat Major Bantams for two seasons, followed by a year with the Weeks Major Midgets.

The Bearcats selected him as a Territorial in 2015, as did the Mooseheads in the Quebec Major Junior Entry Draft. A proven scorer and 200-foot player, he brings a high offensive upside and a wealth of experience to the Bearcats. The 20 year-old will provide leadership in all zones through his speed, passion, and energy.
