Tigers Trade Prospect

MEDICINE HAT, AB - The Medicine Hat Tigers announced this morning they have traded 17-year-old prospect Devon McAndrews to the Tri-City Americans. In return, the Tigers will receive a conditional 6th round pick in the 2014 Bantam Draft.

"EDIT: The WHL website lists the pick as a 6th round pick in the 2014 Bantam Draft."
(Tigers site says 2013)

McAndrews is currently playing with Spruce Grove Saints of the Alberta Junior Hockey League.

"The Tigers appreciate the time and effort Devon has put into his game since being put on our protected list," stated Tigers' gm/head coach Shaun Clouston. "We wish Devon all the best in his future hockey endeavours."

The Tigers will embark on a three game road trip into the BC division beginning on Wednesday in Victoria before heading to Vancouver on Friday and rounding out the trip in Kamloops on Friday.


Bob Tory the Tri-City GM comments on the trade

"Devon is a big power forward with a huge upside," stated Tory. "We hope that, after conversations with Devon and his family, he decides to join our program."

Big body, skated well. Thought he had a great camp and a chance to possibly stick this year. I think possibly Clouston thinks he can and should be playing in the WHL, therefore looked for a team for him. If that was the case, good on the Tigers for allowing a kid they think should be playing in the WHL the opportunity to when depth wise the player didn't fot this year.

Liked him in camp as well. Thought he had a chance of sticking with the team this year. Guess he didn't fit the mold of the 5'10" forwardthis program seems to like.

I like our forward group and think we have added size already, I don't think he fit, too much talent beat him out. Good luck to him.

No question our forward group has talent but it is the smallest group in the league that got smaller by deleting 6'3 Kessy and adding 6'0 Pearce. We have four forwards over 6' tall in Doty, Bredo, Hart and Pearce. Won't be as big an issue in the regular season but come playoff time those small guys are going to wear down.

If Doty is out of the lineup and Kessy already is we are the smallest forward group in the league by far

We have had a number of small guys in the past not "wear down" in playoffs. Do not ever recall Ennis having that problem. Cox, Hunter, etc all did fine last year. Do not see evidence behind this statement. I think it is more of a matter if they get hurt and that seems to be a bit of a toss up as to who gets bit by the injury bug.

So much complaining. 3-1 so far this year on an extremely young team..... can we not just sit back and enjoy the show? No one would have predicted that we would be in this position. Chill
