According to the Canadian Press on Friday, Calgary native Hunter Shinkaruk of the Medicine Hat Tigers will be out for the rest of the 2013-14 Western Hockey League season because of hip surgery.

Shinkaruk was the Vancouver Canucks' first round pick, 24th overall in the 2013 National Hockey League Entry Draft. After recording five goals and 11 assists for 16 points in 18 games, Shinkaruk tried to make Team Canada at the 2014 World Junior Hockey Championship in Malmo, Sweden, but was the second last cut by head coach Brent Sutter.

According to Canucks' general manager Mike Gillis, Shinkaruk tore his labrum in the early part of the season, and was playing with the injury for the Tigers.

So far this season, the Tigers have a record of 22-12-3 and are in third place in the Central Division. There is a possibility that Shinkaruk could be available to the Tigers for the Memorial Cup in London, Ontario from May 16-25.
