The Tigers have added local 19 year old defeceman Ryan Aasman to their protected list. Swift Current had released him a few days ago, as they were trying to get thier numbers down after having 8 potential defenceman returning.
With the addition of Aasman it should create some healthy competition between Aasman, Scott Mackay, and Dylan Businius for playing time, IF he makes the team.
Aasman has previously played for Prince Albert, Seattle Thunderbirds, and Swift Current.
Here is a link to his hockeydb profile.
Also this week prospects and veterans will be trickling into town if their not already here. I assume their training camp schedule will get released fairly soon. (last year at this time thier schedule was released on a tuesday and rookie camp started on friday)
The Medicine Hat News just released an article that details some info on rookie camp
The rookies will play all day friday and saturday and have a top 40 rookie game on Sunday at 9 AM, main Camp will open later in the day at 4PM
