The Owen Sound Attack (5-3-1-2) will look to build on the momentum they gained in Sunday, Oct. 19's win over Windsor when they continue a home stand on Wednesday night against the Barrie Colts.
Barrie, who currently sits in 2nd in the OHL's Eastern Conference with a 6-3-1-0 record, will make their 1st of three trips to the Bayshore this season when the puck drops at 7 PM on the 22nd.
The game comes on the heels of Attack captain Zach Nastasiuk and assistant captain Chris Bigras being named to the OHL's roster for the Subway Super Series against Russia, which is set to take place on Thursday, Nov. 13 in Peterborough and Monday, Nov. 17 in Kingston.
Fans will also get to take in other Super Series players, as Barrie netminder Mackenzie Blackwood was also named to the roster for both games, while forward Brendan Lemieux earned a nod for the Kingston contest.
