Steven Owre hopes he can be part of keeping the California representation strong on the Medicine Hat Tigers.

Owre is a 16-year-old forward from Rockland, Calif., who was selected by the Tigers in the sixth round and 128th overall in the 2010 WHL Bantam Draft. With the tier one Chicago Fury under-16 team last season, Owre showed off an offensive touch netting 22 goals and 17 assists in 38 games.

He wants to follow in the footsteps of fellow California products Emerson Etem and Matthew Konan and have a successful career in the WHL and earn an NHL contract. Etem and Konan are both moving on to professional hockey having signed entry-level deals with the Anaheim Ducks and Philadelphia Flyers respectively.

Owre also wants to keep Los Angeles product Miles Koules company. Koules will be playing his rookie year for the Tigers as an 18-year-old right-winger.

"Obviously, Etem and Konan have set an example that California boys can play in this league," said Owre, who stands 5-foot-9 and weighs 141 pounds.
