Head Coach of the Tigers Tyler Lightbrown was proud of his players achievements throughout their years in minor hockey.

“A you reach the end of your minor hockey playing careers, I just want to say congratulations,” he said in a letter. Congratulations for all of your experiences, relationships and successes you have encountered throughout the time you were able to play this great sport.”

Lightbrown thanked the players for the dedication to hockey these players have shown.

“I know the level of dedication and hard work you have shown to be a part of this team, and many other teams throughout the years,” he said. “I know you will take all the lessons learned from the great many people that have helped you along the way, and use them to find success in whatever path you choose to take.”

He added “you are joining a very proud group of Tigers Alumni and we know you will continue to represent yourself, your team and your community with pride.”

Following the ceremony, which included the traditional puck drop between the Tigers and the Red Deer Elks, the Tigers would go to win a stunning 4-1 victory.

The Tigers got two goals a piece from Rylan Burns and Austin Gallant, while Spencer Kelly would score the only Red Deer goal.

Tigers goaltender Roy Rien would stop 16 of 17 shots on the night.
