The Owen Sound Attack are pleased to select forward Deni Goure with the 10th overall pick of the OHL Priority Selection, presented by Real Canadian Superstore.
The 5’10”, 160 lb. forward from the Chatham-Kent Cyclones recorded 53 points in 32 games last season, with 22 goals and 31 assists, and was named the ALLIANCE Minor Midget Player of the Year.
Attack assistant general manager Joey Hishon was thrilled. “Extremely excited to bring a player of his caliber to the organization. Super skilled, high compete, speedy centre which will match our style of play moving forward.”
The OHL draft preview guide had this to say about the forward: “Deni is a complete player that does everything for his team. He plays in every situation including manning the point on the power play and he is also a very effective penalty killer. Deni is a good skater with good quickness and can beat defenders with his speed. He has good puck skills which allow him to make plays at high speed. He sees the ice very well and is unselfish with the puck. Deni battles hard every shift and logs a ton of ice time for his team.”
