The Owen Sound Attack of the Ontario Hockey League have released forward Brett Hargrave.
Hargrave, a first round draft pick of the Sarnia Sting in 2012, was acquired by the Attack in October of 2013 in exchange for 3 draft picks.
The North Bay native played 50 games for Owen Sound two seasons ago, scoring 4 times.
Hargrave missed all of last year, due primarily to a shoulder injury.
This season, Hargrave returned to the Attack and made a strong bid through training camp to make the squad.
However, he was a scratch for both of the Attack games on the opening weekend of the season, and the decision was made to give him his release and attempt to find another destination for him to play.
