Former Bisons teaming up for the Tigers


TYLER LOWEY
Times Reporter

The Jan. 10 Western Hockey League trade deadline just


passed with its annual flurry of activity. It was this deadline
three years ago that allowed a pair of former Foothills CFR
Chemicals Bisons teammates to be connected once again.
The Medicine Hat Tigers pulled off a last-minute block-
buster deal that sent 95-point man Cole Sanford to the Re-
gina Pats in exchange for Gary Haden, Brian Williams and
three draft picks.
Haden was wrapping up his first season with the Bisons
when former head coach Sandy Henry broke the news to the
young centre.
One year earlier, the Pats nabbed the Airdrie product in
the ninth round of the 2014 WHL bantam draft.
“It made a big difference to me at the time and gave me a
different outlook on things,” said Haden, who is now thriv-
ing in his third year with the Tigers. “I played in the exhibi-
tion season with Regina that fall and was hoping to make
that team one day.
“It all worked out for the best; I made my debut three
games after the deadline and played four games with the
Tigers during my 16-year-old season.”
Haden cracked the Tigers roster for good last season, but
was still battling for ice time, which isn’t uncommon for
17-year-old players. Still, in 32 games, he scored seven goals.
He took it upon himself to put his body through a rigorous
workout regime in the summer with the hopes of earning a
bigger role at Tigers camp. Former Foothills CFR Chemicals Bisons teammates Cole Clayton (l) and Gary Haden are enjoyed sharing the same locker room
