Oilers' prospect Tyler Pitlick is currently playing for the Medicine Hat Tigers along with fellow Oilers' prospect Tyler Bunz. The Tigers have had an unfortunate string of luck lately. First, their bus broke down on the trip back home. Now the team has learned that they will be without Pitlick for a month due to a broken ankle. Pitlick is expected to return to the line-up during the second round of the playoffs.
This is not Pitlick's first injury this year. The centreman/winger has also been out this season due to a lower body injury and a head injury in what has not been the Tigers' healthiest season.
