WHL's Medicine Hat Tigers acquire goalie Wapple in trade with Warriors

MEDICINE HAT, Alta. - The Medicine Hat Tigers acquired goaltender Daniel Wapple from the Moose Jaw Warriors on Tuesday in exchange for a conditional bantam draft pick in either 2015 or 2016.

The 18-year-old netminder appeared in 20 games for the Warriors last season, posting a 3.61 goals-against average and .886 save percentage.

"He is a talented young goalie with an impressive resume with a year of WHL experience," Tigers general manager and head coach Shaun Clouston said in a release.

Wapple played in the Canada Winter Games for Saskatchewan as a 15-year-old. He was selected to the first all-star team in the Saskatchewan Midget Hockey League the following year and posted a league-best save percentage of .929.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
