attack-regThe Owen Sound Attack will look to continue their momentum from a strong weekend of games against the Erie Otters with a tilt in Barrie on Thursday night.

The Attack and Colts will be meeting for the 4th time this season when the puck drops at 7:30 pm on Feb. 19, and Owen Sound will be looking to even the season series at two games apiece. Barrie took the two previous games by scores of 4-2 and 2-1 after the Attack romped to a 6-1 victory earlier in the season.

The Attack enter Thursday night's game with a record of 24-19-2-7, good for 57 points and 6th place in the Western Conference. The Colts are currently in 2nd place in the Eastern Conference by way of their 35-17-1-1 record which has garnered them 72 points. Barrie will prove to be a good measuring stick for the Attack, as the Colts are riding a seven game winning streak and are led into action by 40-goal-scorer Joseph Blandisi.

doczy-regThe Owen Sound Attack in partnership with Brock University is announcing that the Do it for Doczy Campaign will continue in light of the positive news that Milan Doczy received last week.

On February 2nd, Milan was informed that an anonymous donor stepped forward to cover the costs of the expensive Interferon drug. Interferon is the drug that Doctors deem necessary for Milan to take while he battles Melanoma.

The parallels in the hockey careers of Owen Sound Attack veterans Chris Bigras and Zach Nastasiuk are downright spooky.

Four years in the Ontario Hockey League together after both being drafted by the Attack as 16-year-olds from the same minor midget team in Barrie – Nastasiuk in the first round, Bigras in the second round. Both earned world gold with the national under-18 team two years ago in Sochi, Russia. Both played in the CHL Top Prospects game in early 2013. Both played in the OHL All-Stars Super Series, twice. Both were drafted in the second round of the NHL's 2013 entry draft – Bigras by Colorado and Nastasiuk by Detroit. Both are team leaders on the Attack – Nastasiuk was named team captain last season and Bigras alternate captain. And both are having career years this year on the score sheet – right winger Nastasiuk with 57 points as of Feb. 10 and defenceman Bigras with 51 points.
