The Medicine Hat Tigers are a junior ice hockey team in the Western Hockey League (WHL) who play out of Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada. Established in 1970, the team has won two national Memorial Cups, five WHL League Championships and seven Division Titles. The Tigers play at the Medicine Hat Arena. They have a sell-out streak at The Arena dating back 197 games (as of May 15, 2007). This streak ended on March 28, 2008 when a less than capacity crowd attended game five of the first playoff round.

The Tigers lost the 2007 Memorial Cup 3–1 on May 27, 2007, against the Vancouver Giants, which was hosted by Vancouver at the Pacific Coliseum. This was after beating the Giants in double overtime in Game 7 of the WHL Finals two weeks earlier.
