The Owen Sound Attack had a busy Thursday, adding two forwards before the OHL trade deadline on Friday.
The Attack acquired forward Liam Dunda from the Plymouth Whalers in exchange for third Round Draft Pick in 2016 (London’s) and a fourth Round Draft Pick in 2017 (Niagara’s).
The Attack weren’t done there as minutes later, the Bears acquired overage forward Erik Bradford from the Ottawa 67’s in exchange for a second Round Draft Pick in 2018 and a third Round Draft Pick in 2017.
Dunda is a 17 year old winger from Grimsby, and is playing in his second full Ontario Hockey League season.
The 6 foot 4, 215 pound forward notched a goal and three assists last season and has two goals and three assists in 21 games played this season.
Bradford is a 20 year old forward from Orangeville and a veteran of 232 regular season games, with 12 goals and 23 assists so far this year with Ottawa.
The six foot centre has tallied almost 150 career points throughout his OHL career split between the Barrie Colts and Ottawa 67’s.
“Erik is going to come in and provide some scoring and leadership for our younger players while Liam is going to help us with some depth this year and hopefully be a big part of our team moving forward.”, says Attack General Manager Dale DeGray. “We wanted to improve our team now and in the future and I believe we have accomplished that with these two deals.”
Both Liam Dunda and Erik Bradford are expected to be in the line-up on Friday night when the Sarnia Sting visit the Bayshore.
