-Screen Shot From Edmonton Oil Kings Website
Here is a quick SS of the game sheet. TO see a bigger version just click on it. The tigers lost 5-4, with yet again anothe rlineup laden with rookies. Linden Vey, John Stampohar, Cody carlson, and Frazee were the vets. The Edmonton paper reports that Edmonton's Jeff Lee, Ko'd Thomas frazee in a third period scrap.
Willie desjardin commented "I didn’t think we played as hard as we can play. Our older guys need to be better. And we’ll do better coming next weekend." in the MH news.
The Tigers next pre-season game is Saturday, september 6th in Saskatoon versus the Blades.
Maybe its just me but this preseason appears kind of secretive from a fans point of view. Not much information is coming out, and their are 0 preseason home games. 25 days left untill the first Tiger Home game.
Edit: After waiting a couple weeks for a head coach to be named for Team Canada's juniors, you sort of had a feeling that Willie Desjardin would be their second option or fall back guy in case things didn't work out with their first choice. Turns out the Hamilton Spectator(newspaper) has reported, Pat Quinn to be Hockey Canada's first choice. Nothing is official yet, but you'd think an announcement would be made relatively soon, with this kind of rumor leaking.
