When was the last time more than 4,000 fans sang happy birthday to you?

It happened to Halifax Mooseheads goalie Zachary Fucale on Tuesday during a parade for the first ever "Mooseheads Day" to honor the team's victories in the President Cup of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and Memorial Cup as the best team in the Canadian Hockey League.

Fucale, who turned 18, said it was one of the most memorable moments of his life.

"The parade was cool, and it's amazing that it fell on my birthday," Fucale told NHL.com. "There were like 5,000 people in the streets, yelling and everything. During the little ceremony we had, there were 5,000 people singing my birthday. Can you believe that?"

Fucale arrived at the NHL Scouting Combine with teammates Nathan MacKinnon and Jonathan Drouin on Wednesday morning and were immediately forced to don the proper attire for day-long interviews with NHL teams. MacKinnon, No. 2 on NHL Central Scouting's list of the top draft-eligible North American skaters, is rooming with No. 3 Drouin. Fucale, the No. 1-ranked North American player at his position, will share a room with Edmonton Oil Kings goalie and No. 3-ranked Tristan Jarry.

While all three Halifax players are excited to be joining 98 other top prospects this week, today's busy schedule will obviously take a lot more out of the teenagers. Each looked a bit weary on Wednesday morning. Still, they'd do it all again if it meant being a part of the championship parade through the streets of Halifax.

"The people were so excited and passionate, you felt it," Fucale said. "They were waiting for hours and hours. It was successful and it was a proud day for Halifax."

MacKinnon finished with highs of seven goals and 13 points in four games at the Memorial Cup tournament. He had a hat trick and added two assists in 6-4 victory against the Portland Winterhawks in the Memorial Cup championship game Sunday and was awarded the Stafford Smythe Memorial Trophy as tournament MVP.

"It was special … a few thousand people came out and all supported us 100 percent, so it's cool we get that kind of support for sure," MacKinnon said.
