Brandon Product Signs With Medicine Hat of WHL

The Tigers announced that Glover, 15, put pen to paper last week on a standard WHL player agreement. The 5-foot-11, 165-pound winger was originally drafted this past May by Medicine Hat at this year’s WHL Bantam Draft. Glover was selected 25th overall by the Tigers in the second round, after originally being projected as the No. 44 overall player of 260 ranked possibilities.

“Cayden possesses blazing speed with the puck and is very agile,” said Tigers’ Director of Player Personnel Bobby Fox in a media release. “He epitomizes what it means to be a Tiger; Glover is very quick, highly skilled and is known for outworking his opponents.”

Glover put together a fabulous 2018-19 campaign for the Brandon Wheat Kings Bantam AAA team. He registered 47 goals, 66 points and 32 penalty minutes in just 36 regular season games for the baby Wheaties. Glover’s 66 total points was 34 points more than the second-leading scorer on his bantam team.

Medicine Hat qualified for the 2019 WHL postseason as the first Eastern Conference Wild Card team, finishing the year 35-27-6, just four points up on second place wild card Red Deer Rebels. The Tigers lost their first round playoff matchup with the eventual Eastern Conference finalist Edmonton Oil Kings in six games. The team will look to rebound in 2019-20.
