Joey's Journey

Denver | by Bayshore News Staff  

Former Attack First Rounder scores first regular season NHL goal.

The Colorado Avalanche defeated the Nashville Predators 3-2 in the NHL last night.

The game winning goal was scored by former Owen Sound Attack center Joey Hishon.

The goal for Hishon was his first NHL marker.

The journey for Hishon has been a lengthy one.

Selected 8th overall by the Owen Sound Attack in 2007 OHL priority Selection, he had a dazzling career in Owen Sound climaxing with the OHL Championship club in 2011.

However, six days after the Robertson Cup victory, Hishon was felled in the opening game of the Memorial Cup Tournament by an elbow to the head, delivered by Brayden McNabb of the Kootenay Ice.

For the next four years, Hishon's hockey career was delayed and stalled with numerous setbacks and periods of recovery.
