Medicine Hat News has an article on Tigers hopeful Trent Oullette.
http://www.medicinehatnews.com/story/fighting-spot

Trent Ouellette was happy to return to his home rink. He hopes not to go back anytime soon.

On Tuesday, Ouellette’s Medicine Hat Tigers downed the Calgary Hitmen 3-1 in an exhibition match played in Strathmore. Last season, Ouellette suited up for the midget AAA UFA Bisons, whose home arena is the Strathmore Family Centre. The prospect centre was happy to appear in one last contest in that barn before family and friends.

I'm not criticizing anyones comments but i just need to resond "Kessy dangerous hits" chatter. The hits may be on the edge BUT how many of them were because the kids turned at the last second?

You are right.

He does an excellent job at recognizing situations from far out because he has an above average hockey sense.

I like the way Kessey plays. When someone is not paying attention and kessey is on the ice, their likely to end up getting rocked.

We are concerned that one day he will seriously hurt someone with a borderline hit, but I think he is smart enough to avoid extreme situations.

Still every now and then he needs reminding...haha
