Coach-featBy Frank Dabbs

Call it the Greg Ireland junior hockey paradox.

If you put winning first you won't win, the head coach of the Owen Sound Attack told me on the eve of the 2014-2015 schedule.

The Ontario Hockey League team's season begins Wednesday at the Harry Lumley arena at 7 p.m. when they play against the Kitchener Rangers.

Before winning, the young men on the team have to be successful with parallel processes, said Ireland. "In our personal conduct off the ice, we do the right thing every day."

Weekes suited up for the Attack from 1992-1994 before going on to appear in 348 regular season games over parts of eleven seasons in the National Hockey League. Following his playing career, Weekes, 39 now provides color commentary for NHL games on the NHL Network and Hockey Night in Canada. In The Hockey News 2011 edition of the 100 Most Powerful people in ice hockey, Weekes was considered one of the Top 40 under the age of 40.

VARNEY, ON - It was a night that short-track racing legend "The Ironman" #36 Gary Elliott from Waterdown, won't soon forget, nor will he want to. Elliot was able to capture his first feature checker flag in a car he owns since 2008 and he did so beating Open Wheel Modified racing champion #8 Gary McLean of Conn, on a track he has ruled over the last number of years.
