Day After The Draft

Apparently their was an article in the Medicine Hat News today that confirmed Tyler Pitlick will be joining the Tigers next year. (Mentioned on the white board, The Tigers website has been down all day, but I dont think they published this one online)

It had been widely reported that he was leaving his school earlier in the month, and that the Medicine Hat Tigers held his junior rights.

Tyler Pitlick Scouting Report from
Pitlick’s forte is playing a gritty game, going into the corners and winning one-on-one battles. Uses his big frame and wide base to protect the puck, has good hands and quality shot. Good skater, not blazing fast but has great balance. Does not have any skills that will knock you out of your seat, but he is a reliable player that will be a solid contributor in the NHL.

Found an article on Edmontons #2 Overall pick Curtis Lazar, and the Medicine Hat Tigers 6th Round pick 117th overall Cole Sanford. It explains how they spent the draft day and which teams they were hoping to go to.

I also found an article on last years CHL import Pick Rasmus Damgaard. The article states that SønderjyskE has recruited him to play on their team next year.

SønderjyskE is a professional ice hockey team playing in the top Danish ice hockey league AL-Bank Ligaen. lists the status as a rumour, which means it hasn't been confirmed. I'll link the two pages, the danish one (first link) will be linked through the Google translator.
