Looks like Ryley Wozniak (16) has been sent down. His name doesn't appear on the whl or Tigers website anymore.
I was away on Holidays and had no access to internet. Comments are now on moderation mode due to comments getting out of hand.

Here is the last known roster, taken from Alan Caldwell's Small Thoughts At Large
Medicine Hat Tigers (32):
Goaltenders (5): Kenny Cameron (19), Dawson McAuley (18), Kellan Williams (16), Marek Langhamer (18)
Defencemen (10): Kyle Becker (18), Dylan Busenius (19), Daniel Hansen (17), Brennan Hunker (17), Spenser Jensen (17), Tyler Lewington (18), Nathyn Mortlock (16), Matt Staples (17), Ty Stanton (17), Alex Theriau(20)
Forwards (17): Dylan Bredo (19), Gavin Broadhead (17), Chad Butcher (16), Trevor Cox (17), Rhyse Dieno (19), Jacob Doty (19), Jayden Hart (18), Kale Kessy (20), Miles Koules (18), Chad Labelle (17), Boston Leier (19), Alex Mowbray (16), Steven Owre (16), Blake Penner (16), Cole Sanford (17), Hunter Shinkaruk (18), Curtis Valk (19)
Alan Caldwell did an age breakdown of every teams roster after Main Camp. The Tigers have traditionally been near the top in age consistently the last few years. This year they have the 2nd youngest average age at 17.63 years. The roster isn't set yet, and its likely that the age will increase slightly.
It's good news that Marek Langhamer has came over to play for the Tigers. Someone mentioned in the comments that Darren Kruger said he expected him to be here Thursday Night.
I don't expect the roster being settled until the roster cut-down day in October. Clouston's first year as a GM is gonna come with some really tough decisions, but we will get more into that after the exhibition game on Sunday.
