MEDICINE HAT, AB – Medicine Hat Tigers goaltender Jordan Hollett will be looking for a new home in the professional ranks after seeing his contract window with the Ottawa Senators close.

Hollett was not signed by the June 1, 2019 deadline by the Senators and will now re-enter the 2019 NHL Draft later this month.

A two-year member of the Tigers, Hollett was drafted in the sixth round, 183rd overall by the Senators in 2017 and attended two consecutive training camps with the team.

Playing in 36 games with Medicine Hat last year, the 20-year-old posted a 14-19-2-0 record, a 3.50 goals against average, a 0.895 save percentage, and one shutout.

Two other former Tigers also saw their NHL rights expire on Saturday, with former Calgary Flames prospect Zach Fischer and Chicago Blackhawks pick John Dahlstrom both becoming free agents.

Fischer was a fifth-round selection by the Flames back in 2017 and played three seasons in Medicine Hat before being traded to the Spokane Chiefs in his overage year.

As for Dahlstrom, he played one season in Tigers stripes in 2016-17 and put up 59 points in 63 games before heading back overseas to play in Sweden’s Allsvenskan league.
