Medicine Hat, AB — The Medicine Hat Tigers made their second selection of the annual CHL Import Draft, one of few teams who made two selections today as they took 6’1 187lb forward from Sweden John Dahlstrom. Dahlstrom is 19 years old this season and was a 7th Round selection of the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2015 NHL Draft.
Last season Dahlstrom played in Sweden with Frolunda HC J20 and recorded 35 points in 38 games. The season previous Dahlstrom lead the same league in goals with 20 in 28 games.
Dahlstrom has also represented Sweden on the international stage playing at the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament and at the World U18 Championships.
The Tigers would like to welcome John to Medicine Hat and look forward to seeing him in a jersey this season.
