MEDICINE HAT, Alta. - The commissioner of the Western Hockey League says the failure of the City of Medicine Hat to fund a new arena is surprising and disappointing.

Ron Robison says the Tigers are the only WHL franchise to have an arena that doesn't meets league standards.

He says the construction of a new arena and event centre is necessary for the Tigers' future in Medicine Hat.

Robison says a meeting between hockey officials and the city is being scheduled immediately.

In 2004, WHL updated its arena standards and Medicine Hat is the only city to not meet the requirements.
