Handful of Tiger News

Scott Wasden
Former Tiger Scott Wasden who was later traded to the Kamloops blazers has committed to join the UBC Thunderbirds for the 2009-10 season.

Brent Thompson
Tiger Alumni Brent Thompson has been named head coach for the ECHL Alaska Aces. He had been previously coaching as an assistant with Peoria Rivermen.

Matt Keetley, Gord Baldwin
Flames fans, Matt Keetley fans, and Gord Baldwin fans will be pleased at this bit of News. Their are fan reports over on the HF boards saying both of them played extremely well during the flames development camp taking place this week.

Matt Keetley has apparently played pretty phenomenal during the camp and has stood out. Flames Backup Curtis McElhinney has a 1 way contract this year with the flames. Which means Keetley will be battling Leland Irving for the #1 spot in Abbotsford this year.

Last Year Keetley played real well early on giving him a brief stint in the NHL. However he started to struggle a little bit towards mid-season and Leland Irving took over the job.

Gord Baldwin has been reportedly developing a bit of a mean streak in him.

Mark Lamb
Also a bit late but Former Tiger great Mark Lamb is now the head coach and GM of the Swift Current Broncos....

It's the second coach in a row for the Bronco's who is a Medicine Hat Tiger Alumni.

Matt Lowry
The American Hockey League's Binghampton Senators have announced the signing of former Brandon Wheat King Matt Lowry. Lowry was also member of the Tigers 06/07 WHL Championship team.
