The Owen Sound Attack is pleased to announce that they have signed defenseman Chris Bigras (Bee-graw) to a standard Ontario Hockey League Player Contract. The 6’0, 175lb Elmvale, ON. native was selected in the Second Round, 41st overall by the Attack in the 2011 Ontario Hockey League Priority Selection.
Bigras, a teammate of Attack first round selection Zach Nastasiuk on the Barrie Colts Minor Midget squad collected 7 goals to go along with 25 assists and 20 Penalty Minutes in 43 games played. Bigras was described by OHL Central Scouting as a “big bodied, two way defenseman who has shown offensive upside. His improvement from the start of the season to the end was significant and his competition level remains high at all times.”
“We are extremely thrilled to have Chris as a member of our organization.”, stated Attack General Manager Dale DeGray. “Chris has the qualities and characteristics that will make him a cornerstone on our backend for years to come.”
The Attack would also like to congratulate forward Kurtis Gabriel on receiving an invite to the Phoenix Coyotes Rookie camp. Gabriel, an 18 year old from Newmarket, ON. suited up in 40 games last season for a very deep Attack squad last season.
The Attack organization wishes to welcome Chris and the Bigras family to the organization and wish Kurtis the best of luck with Phoenix.
