Halifax Mooseheads forwards Nathan MacKinnon and Jonathan Drouin will be on Team Canada at the world junior hockey championship in Russia.

Not only is it a big deal for the Mooseheads, but it marks the first time since Sidney Crosby that a 17-year-old made the junior team during an NHL lockout.

The news came Thursday night, and fans couldn't contain their excitement.
