Medicine Hat, AB — The Medicine Hat Tigers announced Friday that they have acquired prospect defenceman Aidan Brook, a second round 2019 draft pick and a third round 2020 draft pick from the Seattle Thunderbirds in exchange for forward Henrik Rybinski.

Brook was selected in the fourth round, 76th overall by the Thunderbirds in 2018.
