The Medicine Hat Tigers are slowly but surely getting down to their overage limit.

The WHL team announced Tuesday they’ve sent 20-year-old defenceman Jordan Henderson to the Kootenay Ice in exchange for a conditional sixth-round draft pick in 2019.

That leaves the club with six 20-year-olds still on their roster, though they can only keep three of the overagers for the upcoming season. Forwards Mark Rassell and Zach Fischer, defencemen Ty Schultz, Brad Forrest and Kristians Rubins, and goalie Michael Bullion could all still be at training camp later this month.

Henderson was a trade deadline acquisition from Saskatoon, picked up for a 2017 fifth-round pick. The Vancouver native scored five goals and 14 assists in 37 games (including playoffs) as a Tiger, and has now been traded three times in the span of a year. He started last season in Spokane before being shipped to Saskatoon.

“The Tigers would like to thank Jordan for his dedication and contributions to the Tigers last season,” said Tigers head coach and general manager Shaun Clouston in a press release. “We wish him all the best in Cranbrook with the Ice.”

Medicine Hat’s training camp begins later this month, with their first exhibition game Sept. 1 in Lethbridge.
