attack-red-dogs-regThe Owen Sound Attack will welcome a former Bear to the Bayshore when they host the Niagara Ice Dogs on Wednesday, Jan. 28. Goaltender Brandon Hope will be making his only appearance in Owen Sound while wearing a visiting jersey this year, and he will be leading a resurgent Niagara squad into the game.

Wednesday's contest marks the 2nd time the Attack and the Ice Dogs will have met this year, with Niagara having won the last meeting by a score of 8-7 in overtime back in January.

Since that contest, Niagara has quickly pulled itself out of the basement of the Eastern Conference into contention for home ice in the playoffs. Their turnaround is thanks in large part to the play of New York Islanders draft pick Josh Ho-Sang who leads the team with 55 points in 38 games this year.

McDavid2-regBy Tracey Richardson

The Connor McDavid road show visited the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre Sunday, and the rock star of the Ontario Hockey League didn't disappoint the sellout crowd.

McDavid, expected to be the number one NHL draft pick this summer, notched a goal and four assists Sunday as the Otters hammered the Owen Sound Attack 7-3.

Attack rookie goalie Michael McNiven, projected as the sixth North American goaltender in the summer's draft, picked up what was only his fourth loss in fourteen starts.

It wasn't so much the quantity of shots for Erie (34) as the quality in what turned out to be many polished, prime scoring chances.

attackblack-regThe Owen Sound Attack return home after a three-game road trip and will play host to the Kingston Frontenacs and the Erie Otters this Saturday and Sunday, respectively.

The arrival of the Fronts and Otters in the Scenic City also means a pair of World Junior Hockey Championship gold medallists will be skating at the Bayshore this weekend.

Kingston will be led into Saturday's contest by Lawson Crouse, currently ranked as the 4th-best skater in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft while projected first overall pick Connor McDavid will power the Otters offence on Sunday.

The two forwards were also the only underage players who suited up for Canada at the recent World Juniors, with McDavid leading the tournament in scoring having posted three goals and eight assists in seven games. Crouse contributed one goal and two assists over the course of the competition.

Nastasiuk-regThe Owen Sound Attack has named Captain Zach Nastasiuk the Becker Shoes Player of the Week for the week ending Sunday, January 18th.

Nastasiuk led the way for the Attack on the weekend, tallying four goals and three assists, while being in on all but one of the Attack's eight goals this past weekend.

Nastasiuk led the way on Thursday in Peterborough with a goal and two assists and was also named the games 2nd star in a 3-1 win. The Red Wings prospect followed that up with another 2ndStar performance in the Nations Capital on Friday when he gathered a goal and an assist in a 4-2 loss.
