GAME 3: TIGERS @ RED DEER REBELS

Tuesday 09.25.12 / 05:09 PM

@ RED DEER: This is the first of six meetings between these two Central Division rivals. Last season, Medicine Hat posted a 4-2-0-0 record versus the Rebels (1-2-0-0 at home and 3-0-0-0 in Red Deer) with the Tigers outscoring the Rebels 19-15. Leading the way for Tigers was graduated forward Emerson Etem (7G, 2A) with nine points in five games.  Goaltender Tyler Bunz (4-2-0-0) allowed 13 goals (2.16 GAA) on 210 shots (.938 Save %) in six games. On the power play the Tigers went 8 for 35 (22.9%), while killing off 24 of 25 Rebel opportunities (96.0%).

 

2012-13 WHL RANKINGS:

  • Record (1-1-0-0)      
  • Central Div. – 4th   
  • Eastern Con. – 7th       
  • Home (1-0-0-0)
  • Away (0-1-0-0)

 

2012 EXHIBITION:The Tigers posted a record of 1-4-0-0 in five exhibition games.

 

MILESTONES: Although the Tigers roster is relatively young, a number of players could hit some significant milestones this season. Hunter Shinkaruk has already impressed in his first two seasons and with another big year he could reach the 200 point, 100 assist and 100 goal plateaus. Curtis Valk is also looking forward to building on his success from last season and should pass the 100 point, 50 assist and 50 goal marks. Boston Leier is creeping up on 50 career points and Dylan Bredo is only 8 assists away from 50 in a Tigers uniform. A few players are also approaching some big numbers in their penalty minute totals. If Kale Kessy continues his streak of 100+ PIM seasons he’ll pass 500 for his career. Newcomers Jacob Doty and Derek Ryckman are both sitting just under 300 PIMs for their career and will surely pass that mark and potentially reach 400 by season’s end.
