The Owen Sound Attack is pleased to announce that they have acquired goaltender Brandon Hope from the Sarnia Sting in exchange for a 4th Round Selection in the 2013 Priority Selection.
Hope, a native of Canton, Michigan appeared in 18 games during the 2011/2012 season for the Sting, compiling a 5-3-0-2 record to go along with a 3.86 GAA and an .872 save percentage.
The 18 year old netminder also appeared in 29 games as a 16 year old during 2010/2011, finishing with a 7-15-1-1 record and was a 3rd Round Selection in the 2010 OHL Priority Selection.
“We feel that having Brandon on board gives us greater goaltending depth throughout the organization.”, stated Attack General Manager Dale DeGray. “Brandon is an experienced goaltender who we believe still has a very high upside.”
The goaltending battle at training camp is expected to be one of the most heated in recent years. While Jordan Binnington is away at the St. Louis Blues Training Camp, Brandon Hope, JP Cesario, Cameron Hackett and Evan Morse are all expected to compete.
