Dudas and Szypula share Player of the Week honours
The Owen Sound Attack has named Aidan Dudas and Ethan Szypula the co-Huron Tractor Players of the Week for the 20th Week of the Ontario Hockey League after combining for 14 points in three games this past weekend.
The linemates recorded back to back hat-tricks in the Attack’s Eastern Conference road swing, with Szypula finishing the trip having scored five times while adding two assists, and Dudas finding the back of the net four times with three helpers to his name.
Kicking the weekend off with a 6-5 win in Peterborough over the Petes on Thursday, Feb. 8, the pair exploded offensively – combining for nine points alone in that game.
Dudas picked up his first career Ontario Hockey League hat-trick while also assisting on both of Szypula’s goals that night. Szypula also recorded a pair of helpers against the Petes, both of which came on two of Dudas’ goals.
The following night in Kingston, they were back at it again – this time with Szypula scoring three times, including the game winner in overtime, to help lead the Attack to a 4-3 win over the Frontenacs. Dudas tallied one assist in that game before scoring his 4th goal of the weekend on Sunday in a tough 4-3 loss to the Ottawa 67’s.
Highlights of the duo’s offensive explosion can be found below.
Szypula, Dudas, and the Attack will be back in action on Valentine’s Day when they play host to the London Knights in a 7:00pm puck drop at the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre.
Wednesday night’s game will also help fans celebrate Valentine’s Day with DC Taylor Jewellers, with the first 300 couples to visit the DC Taylor table in the south concourse eligible to win a diamond courtesy of the local fine jeweller.
The first 300 couples to register at the table will receive a velvet bag that contains a Cubic Zirconia. In the 3rd period of play, a number will be drawn from the 300 bags with the corresponding couple winning an authentic diamond courtesy of DC Taylor Jewellers.
Tickets for Wednesday night’s game are limited to standing room only and can be purchased at the MacVicar & McComb ReMax Attack Box Office.
