Shane McColgan, Josh Nicholls, and the second-seeded Saskatoon Blades fell into a 3-0 hole to the Medicine Hat Tigers in the first round of the WHL playoffs. Both McColgan and Nicholls were held off the scoresheet in last night’s 5-2 loss. Nicholls is already signed to an entry-level contract for next season, and it is likely that McColgan will get his own ELC if and when Saskatoon is eliminated from the WHL playoffs.
While neither are signed for this season, they could both play for the Whale this year on ATOs.
