GAME DAY | ICE look to snap three-game losing streak when they visit the Tigers

Cranbrook, B.C. – The Kootenay ICE (8-11-1-0) look to snap a three-game losing streak when they visit the Medicine Hat Tigers (12-6-0-0) Tuesday evening.

Puck drop at the Canalta Centre is scheduled for 7 p.m.

The ICE are coming off a disappointing weekend where they dropped a 5-3 and 5-4 decision to Prince Albert and Spokane respectively.

Despite the three-straight losses, the ICE remain second in the Central Division and fifth in the Eastern Conference.

The Tigers have won four in a row and currently sit atop the Central Division and third in the Eastern Conference.

It’s expected 1997-born forward Colton Kroeker will miss his third-straight game as he deals with a lower body injury. Kroeker remains the team leader in goals and points with seven and 19 respectively.

The ICE will get 2001-born forward Peyton Krebs back in the line up for the first time this month. Krebs missed five games while representing Canada at the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge in Fort St. John and Dawson Creek, B.C. Krebs and Canada Red earned a silver medal at the tournament.

The Tigers are led in points by 1997-born forward Mark Rassell, who has 26 (17G, 9A) in 18 games. Second in team scoring is 1998-born defenceman David Quenneville, who has 24 points (6G, 18A) in 17 games.

This is the second meeting of the season between the ICE and the Tigers – it’s also the second time the ICE have played in Medicine Hat. The first meeting was on October 20 when the Tigers defeated the ICE by a score off 11-1.

Over the last five seasons, the ICE are 1-8-1-1 when playing in Medicine Hat and 5-15-1-1 overall.

The last time the ICE defeated the Tigers was March 12, 2016 – a 4-3 victory.

The next time these two teams meet will be January 1, 2018 at Western Financial Place.
