Colts Visit Owen Sound

Owen Sound | by Fred Wallace  

Pre-Game thoughts from Attack Coach Greg Ireland before Wednesday battle.

The new look Owen Sound Attack will host the Barrie Colts on Wednesday night in Ontario Hockey League action.

The Attack -- who acquired 17 year old forward Brett Hargrave in a transaction with Sarnia on Tuesday -- will meet the Colts for the second time this season.

The North Bay native will play for the Attack in tonight's game.

Barrie won the opening game of the annual six game series between these two teams back on September 26th by a 7-5 count at the Molson Centre.

The Attack are coming off a 5-4 overtime loss to Windsor on Sunday, a game in which Owen Sound faded down the stretch.

Owen Sound Head Coach Greg Ireland is aiming for a complete effort tonight, citing stretches in the game against Windsor where the Attack were very strong.

Game time is 7 PM at the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre.

Following tonight's game, the Attack will play their next seven games on the road.

Both teams received some good news on Wednesday.

Attack Captain Zach Nastasiuk and defenceman Chris Bigras have been named to the OHL team for the Subway Super Series against the Russian Selects.

Bigras will play in both games in Oshawa and Sudbury next month while Nastasiuk will play in the Oshawa game.

Barrie Captain Aaron Ekblad will also play in both games for the OHL.
