Medicine Hat Tigers to select first overall in 2022 CHL Import Draft

The Canadian Hockey League announced Tuesday the Order of Selections for the 2022 CHL Import Draft, to be held online Friday, July 1 at 9:00 a.m. MT.

The Medicine Hat TigersĀ hold the first-overall selection, to be followed by the Ontario Hockey League’s Saginaw Spirit and the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League’s Cape Breton Eagles.

Medicine Hat will select first overall in the CHL Import Draft for the second time in franchise history. The Tigers drafted Czech defenceman Vladimir Sicak with the first pick in the 1998 CHL Import Draft; Sicak went on to skate in 105 WHL regular season games with Medicine Hat from 1998-2000.

The Tigers are the first WHL Club to select first overall in the CHL Import Draft since the Swift Current Broncos selected Finnish defenceman Kasper Puutio in 2019.

Each of the 60 CHL Clubs are permitted to make a maximum of two selections in the 2022 CHL Import Draft.
