Watched the Red White game. My first look and I am impressed.Our D should stand tough against anyone our 5-6 guys are going to be lights out WOW. Guzda very solid positionally and fast side to side with the team in front of him could he take the starting role or is that to much pressure for a rookie? We are going to have a number of kids sent home that could play in this league,Kudos to DD and staff for finding so many talented players.

They had to make some tough cuts last night. Some good kids that could play in this league went home. I'm happy they kept these three.
Going to be a fun team to watch this year

I have to figure they got it right....from what you folks have been saying.

I still think there's going to be a players for picks sort of deal coming up quickly. 27 or even 26 is too many players and the farm still holds potential OHL players that should be given a shot.

OS can use picks for the future and gains nothing by having 30+ potential players with 5-10 aging out before having a shot at the OHL.

Attack open exhibition schedule with win over Barrie

The Owen Sound Attack kicked off the exhibition schedule with a dominant 5-1 win over the visiting Barrie Colts on Sunday, Sept. 3.

A pair of goals by Alan Lyszczarczyk and singles by Jacob Friend, Kevin Hancock, and Matthew Struthers provided the offence as 15 saves by Zach Bowman was enough to pick up the victory in front of an eager Bayshore Community Centre.

Owen Sound’s first game of the pre season started with a little bit of sibling rivalry as Attack centreman Nick Suzuki took the game’s opening draw – and won – against his younger brother Ryan, who the Colts selected 1st overall in the 2017 OHL Priority Selection.

But until the last minute of play in the frame, that faceoff would be really the only action that got a rise out of the fans.

Despite earning a pair of opportunities on the man advantage, the Attack powerplay unit would fail to convert, making Barrie’s Christian Propp look stellar in goal.

Owen Sound would find a chink in the armour, though, and with 35 seconds left in the period Alan Lyszczarczyk jumped on a loose puck and went streaking into the Colts zone on a breakaway, eventually pushing the puck into the back of the net for a 1-0 Attack lead.

The horn would sound soon after and Owen Sound skated into the break nursing that one goal lead with a 16-4 advantage on the shot clock.

The ice wasn’t even dry yet when play resumed for the 2nd when Lyszczarczyk picked up his 2nd of the game off of another breakaway.

This time, Nick Suzuki would pick up the assist on the play, flipping the puck up to Lysczarczyk who made a bee-line behind the Colts’ defence after jumping off the bench.

Lyszczarczyk’s 2nd of the game came just 36 seconds into the middle stanza, putting the Colts on their heels early in the period.

Owen Sound wasn’t done there either.

At 4:33 of the 2nd, Jacob Friend made no mistake on a one-time pass from Suzuki, making it 3-0 for the home side.

Owen Sound’s relentless push was halted by a four minute high sticking penalty to rookie forward Jackson Doherty, forcing the Bears to play defence for an extended period of time.

The Bayshore Boys didn’t bend, though, and a solid penalty kill coupled with five saves by Zach Bowman sent Owen Sound to the dressing room with a 3-0 lead.

And just like the 2nd period, the 3rd began with a quick strike from the Attack, this time courtesy of Mathew Struthers.

Struthers would slip behind a sleeping Colts’ defence and make no mistake, ripping his first of the pre-season through the five hole of Kai Edmonds,who took over in net for Christian Propp at the midway point of the game.

Nick King and Jacob Friend garnered the assists on the play, which briefly made it a four goal lead.

Barrie was able to get on the board though, when Lucas Chiodo converted on a pass from Ryan Suzuki at 4:34 of the 3rd to make it 4-1 in favour of Owen Sound.

Kevin Hancock restored the four goal lead with 1:20 to play in the game, however, converting on passes from Lyszczarczyk and King to round out the scoring and give the Attack a 5-1 win in their pre-season opener.

Zach Bowman turned aside 16 shots on the afternoon, as the shots on goal finished at 35-17 for the Attack.

Owen Sound will now head to Barrie on Labour Day Monday to square off again with the Colts. Puck drop for that game is set for 6:00pm.

The Attack’s next home exhibition game is their final contest of the pre-season and will be played on Saturday, Oct. 16 at home against the North Bay Battalion. Puck drop for that game is set for 2:00pm and tickets can be purchased at the MacVicar & McComb ReMax Attack Box Office.

Nice tidy win today. Attack controlled most of the game and still had a bunch of regulars sitting in the stand. Bowman was not busy but solid when he was needed. Hopefully this is the way the whole year goes!!

Ryan Suzuki says his big brother Nick has always been his biggest role model in hockey.

“I went to a lot of his games in minor hockey and watched a lot of the little things he does and whenever I skate with him, I try to pick up some new things. He's been my biggest inspiration pretty much my whole life,” Ryan said Sunday after his Barrie Colts lost 5-1 to the Owen Sound Attack in Ontario Hockey League exhibition play at the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre.

Eighteen-year-old Nick Suzuki is the skilled sophomore centre with the Attack, who was drafted 13th overall by the Las Vegas Golden Knights in this summer's NHL Entry Draft.

His 16-year-old brother Ryan, also a centre, is a rookie with Barrie after being selected by the Colts as the first overall pick in the OHL Priority Selection in April.

With their parents and other family members in the stands, the Suzuki brothers faced off against each other to open Sunday's game and were opponents on the ice several times throughout the contest.

Nick Suzuki even got a penalty for slashing his younger brother in the third period.

“I saw him skating to the bench and I just gave him a little tap and apparently I slashed him hard enough to get a penalty. I think it was just more of a love tap to welcome him,” Nick said.

Nick and Ryan, who are from London, Ont., never played with or against each other in minor hockey, but they did play many road hockey games and scrimmages together growing up.

So Sunday's game was a first for the brothers.

“It's definitely a different thing to play your brother in the OHL but I think he did really well tonight,” Nick said after the game.

“He got an assist too so I think he looked good out there and it was fun to play against him.”

Ryan said it was nice seeing a familiar face on the ice.

“But, at the same, you kind of have to focus on your game and not worry about him too much. But it was fun seeing him out there. He gave me a little slash but he got a penalty for it and I was laughing at him for that one,” he said.

The Suzuki brothers' parents, Amanda and Rob, said they were beaming with pride watching their two sons play Sunday.

“It's one of those dreams come true to see both boys play together at this level,” Amanda said.

Rob said they weren't cheering for a team to win Sunday, but rooting for both of their sons to do well.

Amanda said now that she and Rob are empty-nesters, they will be able to travel more often from their home in London to both Owen Sound and Barrie to watch their sons play.

Amanda said Nick and Ryan were “very close” growing up and are both awesome kids.

“They're very humble and they're good teammates and linemates,” she said.

The Attack led 1-0 after the first period Sunday and 3-0 after the second.

Alan Lyszczarczyk scored twice for Owen Sound, while Jacob Friend, Matthew Struthers and Kevin Hancock added a goal apiece.

Lucas Chiodo netted the lone Barrie goal.

Nick Suzuki had a pair of assists and Ryan Suzuki also had an assist. Nick was named the third star of the game.

Owen Sound goalie Zack Bowman stopped 16 shots, while Barrie's Kai Edmonds and Christian Propp combined to stop 31 shots.

After Sunday's game, Nick Suzuki said he sees great things ahead for the Attack this season.

“We've got a lot of good players and we've got a lot of guys coming back who have been through the OHL and have experience there. From what I've seen, I think we can be a top team,” he said.

The Owen Sound Attack are next in action on Labour Day with a 6 p.m. game against the Colts in Barrie. After that, the Attack will face the Oshawa Generals Sept. 13 on the road. The Attack will wrap up their exhibition schedule with a pair of games against the North Bay Battalion: Sept. 16 at 2 p.m. at the Lumley-Bayshore and Sept. 17 in North Bay.

The Attack's first game of the regular season is Sept. 23 when they play host to the Flint Firebirds at 7:30 p.m. at the Lumley-Bayshore.

SLAPSHOTS: The Attack announced Saturday the signings of three players at the conclusion of training camp. Defenceman Igor Chibrikov and forwards Jackson Doherty and Marino Moro were signed to OHL Standard Player Agreements, bringing the Attack's exhibition roster to 27 players. The trio join Mitchell Russell and Mack Guzda as recent rookie signings.
