Medicine Hat, AB – The Medicine Hat Tigers announce this morning they have made a trade with the Brandon Wheat Kings for the services of 18-year-old goaltender Christopher Tai. The Wheat Kings will receive a conditional pick in the 2015 bantam draft from the Tigers.
The move to bring Tai onto the roster is a result of Czech-born goalie Marek Langhamer leaving for the 2014 World Junior Hockey Championships next week. Tai is expected to report to the Tigers on Monday.
Basically just a cover for When Langhamer is gone to the World Juniors. Tai was acquired by Brandon from Lethbridge to help fill in for the injured Starter Curtis Honey who has just returned.
