CHL IMPORT DRAFT SET FOR WEDNESDAY

Medicine Hat, AB — Players like Sergei Klimentiev, Yannic Seidenberg, Marek Langhamer and Zdenek Okal are only a few European talents to travel to Medicine Hat and dawn the Tigers jersey.

The 2017 Canadian Hockey League Import Draft is set for Wednesday June 28th in which the Medicine Hat Tigers hold the 59th and 117th picks. Each team in the CHL is permitted to carry two European Import players each season. These players are selected annually at the Import Draft, with the order of selection rotating through each of the three leagues in the CHL using an inverse order of their final regular season standings.

Managers can choose to make a selection or pass upon their choice, based on open roster positions for the upcoming season. Last year General Manager and Head Coach Shaun Clouston scored with their two selections in Kristians Rubins and John Dahlstrom. Dahlstrom was a 30 goal scorer and set a new franchise record for goals scored by an import player in one season, while Rubins brought stability to the Tigers blueline throughout the season.
