Medicine Hat, AB - The Medicine Hat Tigers announced today the reassignment of 17-year-old defenseman Kyle Becker to Cowichan Valley of the BCHL.
"Kyle had surgery on his wrist in August and he is now fully rehabbed and ready to play," said Tigers' general manager Brad McEwen.
"We feel it's best for him to play some games and there is an opportunity for him in Cowichan Valley to do that. He will go there and get the ice time he needs and we look forward to Kyle being a big part of our program as we move forward."
If Becker had been healty from the start thier probably would have been more of a chance to see what he could do. I think he will have a very good chance next year at getting a roster spot.
This gets the Tigers down to 7ish defenceman with Mckay playing forward, and solidifies the roster for now.
Team whl was announced this morning. It is largely used for Team Canada scouts to get a look at players possibly competing for spots for the World junoirs. Tyler Bunz was the only Tigers to make the list. Bunz will be in both game on November 16,17.
