I was extremely quiet with this blog in the off-season, and skipped quite a bit of Tiger News, but other sources have done a much better job at relaying information (especially now that twitter and facebook all have whl/tiger feeds).
Now that hockey season is around the corner its time to start this blog back up.
Dylan Busenius (finally spelled his name right)
Dylan Busenius participated in the Minnesota Wild's prospect camp this off-season. Dylan must have done well enough because he is listed on the roster for the Minnesota Wild's Traverse City prospect camp. So that makes 10 Tigers in total invited to prospect camps. Read the Medicine Hat News Article for More information on the other 9 Tigers going off to NHL Camps.

I'd also be a little surprised if Mathew Konan does not eventually get an invite somewhere. He is a big body, long reach, stay at home physical defenceman, who has the potential to skate the puck out of the zone. I'm hoping this kid put some muscle on in the off-season. I still think he has a degree of pro potential in him at least of ahl quality, but he still needs to get stronger and quicker.
