In what should be a busy offseason, the Medicine Hat Tigers made their first deal, acquiring 19 year old goaltender Evan Johnson from the Portland Winterhawks over the weekend.
This likely solves the "2nd goaltender spot". ( Notice I didn't say backup) I would imagine that Johnson will push Nick Schneider for the starters job.
This does create more competition, depth and provides a solid position in the net for a pretty cheap price. Incoming goal-tending prospects may be hard pressed to make the team this upcoming season.
