OCTOBER 19, 2017
Attack and Otters face off in Erie

For the first time since Game 5 of the 2017 Western Conference Championship Series, the Owen Sound Attack will make the trip to the Erie Insurance Arena.


Lying in wait are the 3-6-1-0 Erie Otters and a pair of games between the Midwest Division rivals.

An Owen Sound-Erie tradition, the Attack and Otters will square off at 7:00pm on Saturday, Oct. 21 and then again on Sunday evening at 5:00pm.

Following a week that saw the Attack claim victories in three games – including a 5-2 win over Erie at the Bayshore – Owen Sound currently sits at 2nd in the Midwest Division with a record of 6-1-0-2 for 14 points.

Erie, meanwhile, will enter the weekend set with a record of 3-6-1-0 and in 4th place in the Division. One of their tasks will be keeping the Attack’s powerplay – operating at a league best 30.2% – in check, while also finding a way to get past the OHL’s 7th ranked penalty killing unit.

Owen Sound’s special team’s play is due in large part to the offensive and defensive prowess of their elite players.

Vegas Golden Knights prospect Nick Suzuki leads the OHL in points with 18 in nine games of action, while also factoring in heavily on the team’s penalty killing unit.

Just behind Suzuki on the league’s point list is defenseman Sean Durzi, whose 17 points leads all rearguards across the OHL and has made him a dangerous player at both ends of the ice. Kevin Hancock, who broke out in 2016-17 with an 85 point season, is also amongst the league leaders with 14 points, one ahead of Erie’s leading scorer Kyle Maksimovich.

Fans can watch the Attack and Erie in both games this weekend live on Rogers Local 53. The games will also be available on Kia of Owen Sound/Terry’s Trailer Service Bear Radio on 560 CFOS.

Owen Sound’s next home game is slated for Saturday, Oct. 28 when the North Bay Battalion come to town for a 7:30pm tilt.

Tickets for that game are available at the MacVicar & McComb ReMax Attack Box Office, online at www.attackhockey.com, or by calling 519-371-7452.

The Weekend Preview is brought to you by Joe Tomato’s, located next to the Galaxy Cinemas on the Sunset Strip. Fans can enjoy half priced wings and appetizers at Joe Tomato’s following every Attack home game simply by showing their ticket stub.

This season of Attack Hockey is presented by Lerner’s Personal Injury Lawyers and Bertrand & Muzzell Paralegal Services.

I'm probably wromg but I let Guzda start and I make it perfectly clear that we either play d the way we can or the lights are on at the Bayshore when we get home and WE WILL LEARN TO PLAY DEFENCE. If we play another game like Saturday they will have to scrape the Bayshore ice Monday morning to clean off the puke that will cover it.

Here at the ten game mark it is becoming evident if the Attack can't find a .900 % goaltender this season could well be lost.

That will be a shame, as this may be the strongest forward group ever.

The team has been fortunate to have developed a number of great goalies, and always having one ready to step in when the last has left.

I think the chain was broken when Riley Daniels was not that guy.

I have no doubt Guzda will be the next, but this year the team cannot rely on a career BUG with an .850 %.

Wow never seen that coming this weekend.

Poor goaltending, poor defense, too many penalties.

If the Attack don't score 6 goals in a game it appears they struggle to win.

These guys are not here this year and their replacements are not the same calibre.

Centorame - Friend
McNiven - Bowman
James - Szypula
Palmu - Lyszczarczyk or Campbell
Schmalz - ???

McGill - Gill

Is it possible all the experts got it wrong this year?

Just looking at this I would say Dale has a bigger job ahead of him than most people thought.

Your older players have to be your better players on good teams.

Even with Durzi, Suzuki, Sushko and Dudas better this year that is not enough.

Bringing in a puck carrying defenceman like Brady Lyle should help but guys like Friend, Bourque, Cameron have to be better.

Campbell has no goals and Syypula with 1 goal are under achievers taking up critical ice time.

Gill has his work cut out for him if he can turn it around if not people will be calling for his head at some point.

Just watched highlights from yesterday. Not sure Bowman was the issue, the defense seemed a bit out of sorts. Hopefully Lyle will help back there.
Nice goal by Groulx.
