Attack acquire Lyszczarczyk and Bowman from Wolves
The Owen Sound Attack is announcing that it has acquired forward Alan Lyszczarzczyk (Lis-sar-chuck), goaltender Zach Bowman, and a conditional 4th round draft pick (2018) in a trade with the Sudbury Wolves.
General Manager Dale DeGray sent the Wolves London’s 2nd round pick in 2018, Owen Sound’s 3rd round pick in 2022, and a conditional 4th round pick in 2019 in exchange for the high flying forward and overage netminder.
Lyszczarczyk, a Polish national, is a 19 year old entering his 3rd year in the Ontario Hockey League. In his previous two campaigns with the Wolves, the centreman has suited up in 128 games, scoring 27 times while helping on 55 others for a total of 82 points. He also chipped in with a goal and an assist in six games during Sudbury’s playoff run this past year.
Born in Wallington, New Jersey, Lyszczarczyk spent his childhood in Poland and has represented his boyhood country three times already in his young career, scoring a total of six goals with 17 assists in 13 international games.
“Alan is an elite player that brings a lot to the table for a team,” DeGray said of Lyszczarczk. “With his talent and experience on the international level, we’re sure that Alan can step into our dressing room and have an immediate impact. We’re very excited to add him to the line up.”
Joining Lyszczarczyk in moving from Sudbury to Owen Sound is overage netminder Zach Bowman.
A native of St. Catharines, Ontario, Bowman is a veteran of 94 regular season games in the OHL, with a record of 19-49-5-1 to go along with a career 4.15 goals against average and .889 save percentage.
Originally a 4th round pick of the Plymouth Whalers in the 2013 OHL Priority Selection, Bowman was traded to the Wolves from the Flint Firebirids in the 2015-16 season.
“Zach is a real competitor that we feel adds another level of depth to our roster. We’re excited to get him into training camp and into our organization,” DeGray said about his newly acquired netminder.
Both Lyszczarczyk and Bowman will be in the Attack’s 2017 Training Camp, which gets underway on Monday, Aug. 28 at the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre.
Camp opens with two days of Rookie Camp before transitioning to Main Camp with all returning players. A full schedule can be found HERE.
Single game tickets also go on sale on Monday and can be purchased at the MacVicar & McComb ReMax Attack Box Office, online at www.attackhockey.com, or by calling 519-371-7452.
