LAST GAME: The Tigers played host to the Lethbridge Hurricanes on Saturday night at Co-op Place. It was a hard fought affair throughout, Brayden Boehm was able to get an early third period goal to bring the Tigers to within one of the Hurricanes, but a last second Logan Barlage faceoff win / shot attempt on Hurricanes netminder Jared Picklyk was shut down and the Hurricanes walk away with a 2-1 victory. Beckett Langkow stopped 23 of 25 shots sent his direction.

MILESTONES: Tigers Captain Daniel Baker played in his 200th career WHL game on January 21st in Saskatoon. Owen MacNeil appeared in his 100th career WHL game vs the Prince Albert Raiders the following night. Rhett Parsons, Oren Shtrom, Oasiz Wiesblatt, Tyler MacKenzie, Pavel Bocharov, Teague Patton and Brayden Boehm, Ashton Ferster and Reid Andresen have each recently played in their 50th career games.

PLAYER TO WATCH: OASIZ WIESBLATT is looking forward to taking on the Prince Albert Raiders. You can be sure the youngest Wiesblatt will be closely marked on Monday as the former 1st round Bantam Pick scored his first career hattrick against the Raiders back in January. Wiesblatt has eight goals and 13 assists this season this season to go along with 36 penalty minutes. Oasiz brings a huge amount of physicality and energy to each and every game plays. The 17-year-old forward is equally adept at gliding on his edges through the offensive zone as he is as sitting down much larger opponents with his physical play.
