GAME 7: TIGERS @ KAMLOOPS BLAZERS

Saturday 10.06.12 / 09:10 AM

VS KAMLOOPS: This is the first of two meetings this season between the Tigers and Blazers. Last season, Medicine Hat posted a 1-1-0-0 record versus the Blazers (0-1-0-0 at home and 1-0-0-0 in Kamloops). Leading the way for the Tigers was graduated forward Emerson Etem (2G, 1A) with three points in the two games. Tyler Bunz (1-1-0-0) started both games in net and allowed six goals (3.04 GAA) on 59 shots (.898 Save %). On the power play the Tigers went 3 for 11 (27.3%), while killing off 7 of 9 Blazers’ opportunities (77.8%).

 

2012-13 WHL RANKINGS:

  • Record (3-2-1-0).        
  • Central Div. – 2nd.    
  • Eastern Con. – 5th.         
  • Home (2-0-0-0).    
  • Away (1-2-1-0).

 

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 only two away from 50 career points and Dylan Bredo is only seven 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.
