The Medicine Hat Tigers have completed the reshaping of their organization that was necessitated earlier in the week when GM/head coach Willie Desjardins joined the NHL’s Dallas Stars as an associate coach. . . . The Tigers took Brad McEwen, their director of scouting, and made him the general manager. McEwen has been around the WHL for a while -- he was the executive of the year in 2001-02 when he was with the Swift Current Broncos -- so the Tigers won’t miss a beat. . . . McEwen then promoted Shaun Clouston, who had been the Tigers’ associate coach, to head coach. Clouston, 42, has been with the Tigers for seven seasons.
