Tigers Preseason Tournament Review

St. Albert, AB – Medicine Hat kicked off the 2010 WHL Preseason against the Prince George Cougars on Saturday night and then faced off against the host Edmonton Oil Kings on Sunday.

On Saturday, despite a valiant effort from the rookie laden Tigers, the Cougars scored three unanswered goals in a 3-1 victory.

The Tigers, who elected to bring many of their ’94 and ‘95 born prospects to the tournament, jumped out to an early 1-0 lead on goal by rookie Boston Leier (93).  Tigers rookie goaltender Dawson MacAuley (94) went the distance stopping 34 of 37 shots in the loss.

The Cougars got goals from first-overall bantam draft pick Alex Forsberg and NHL first-round draft pick Brett Connolly, while Caleb Belter also scored for Prince George.

Sunday night, the Tigers were looking to get into the win column against the host Edmonton Oil Kings.  Reid Petryk‘s (93) power play goal at 18:16 of the 3rd period broke a 2-2 tie giving Medicine Hat a 3-2 victory over their Central Division rivals.

Prior to the game winning goal, the Tigers never led after trailing 1-0 and 2-1.  Also scoring for the Tigers were rookies Jayden Hart (94) and Hunter Shinkaruk (94).

Tigers’ goaltender Tyler Bunz, a native of St. Albert, AB, stopped 29 of 31 shots in the win.
Colton Stephenson and Curtis Lazar scored for the Oil Kings.

The Tigers preseason continues on Saturday, September 11th against the Swift Current Broncos at The Arena in the 2nd Annual Charity Classic.  Game time is 7:30 PM.  Tickets are only $10.00 each with all proceeds benefiting the Medicine Hat Regional Hospice Palliative Care Society.  To purchase tickets, visit the Tigers main office located in The Arena or call 403-527-8406.
