Bigras, Gabriel Coming Back

Owen Sound | by Manny Paiva  

NHL clubs sending Chris Bigras and Kurtis Gabriel back to the Owen Sound Attack.

The Owen Sound Attack will have two more players in the lineup this weekend.

The OHL club has announced that forward Kurtis Gabriel and defenceman Chris Bigras have been sent back to the team.

The 20 year old Gabriel was attending the Minnesota Wild training camp after being a third round draft choice of the NHL Club earlier this summer.

The 18 year old Bigras was a second round pick of the Colorado Avalanche this past summer.

Bigras had signed a three year entry level contract with the Avs last week after impressing the NHL club at its training camp.

Bigras finished with 38 points and was a plus 35 in 68 games last OHL season while Gabriel had 28 points and 100 penalty minutes in 67 games.

Both players are expected to be in town for practice on Wednesday.

Gabriel's return now gives the Attack four overage players as he joins forwards Cameron Brace and Kyle Hope as well as defenceman Brayden Rose.

The Attack are back in action on Thursday in Barrie before returning home on Saturday to take on the Wolves.
