According to Greg Harder it took Regina some convincing for them to acquire Cody Carlson.
Carlson was rumored to have asked for a trade, but he wanted to play closer to home.
The tigers were able to fetch a 3rd round 2010 bantam draft pick for him.
I think a fresh start will do Carlson good. Like I said earlier I thought he was battling confidence issues, and a good guy to try and take a gamble on.
He will make his mistakes but given the right situation he could develop into a key member for regina. He was expellable as the tigers had 9 guys at Defense who have all shown capabilities of being a whl regular.
Carlson was playing allot on the powerplay on their last road trip, maybe designed to increase his value. I think a 3rd rounder is excellent value for him.

The tigers now have an extra second rounder as well as an extra third rounder for the next bantam draft.
Mark Isherwood was named whl player of the Week. Isherwood picked up 6 points, scoring four goals and two assists to go with a +2 rating, in three games over the past week, helping the Tigers post a 3-0 record in that span.
