The Tigers 1st round pick 15th overall in the CHL Import draft has decided to Join the Medicine Hat Tigers.
Kristians Rubins exercised a clause in his contract for the CHL and has decided to Join the Medicine hat Tigers this fall.
(The article is in swedish)
Rubins will be in his 19 yr old season. The 6'4 216 lb defenceman will be a welcomed presence with the graduation of Ty Stanton in the off-season.
I Imagine the Tigers hope he can fill a 1st line role and partner with Kirichenko on the top line. We will have to wait and see on what he is capable of.
I haven't heard any word yet on John Dahlstrom their other pick.
