Sep 01, 2012 - 11:32 MDT

The Calgary Hitmen opened their six-game WHL pre-season schedule Saturday afternoon with a 3-1 win over the Medicine Hat Tigers at the Edmonton Oil Kings sixth annual Pre-Season Invitational.

Carson Samoridny (2g) and Greg Chase (2a) added two points each for Calgary, while Travis Sanheim also scored in the win.

Chris Driedger had an impressive 34-save performance between the Hitmen pipes as Calgary’s line-up featured only nine regulars from last season.

The Hitmen wrap up the tournament tomorrow afternoon at 3 p.m. when they face the Swift Current Broncos at Servus Credit Union Place in St. Albert, AB.
