For the first time in over 537 days members of the Owen Sound Attack will take to the ice at the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre on Monday, August 30 as the team opens its 2021 Training Camp. The first two days of camp, August 30-31, will see 36 prospects vie for a coveted spot in main camp, September 1-3, for their chance earn a spot on the 2021-22 Attack roster.
The 36 rookies coming to camp include three goalies, 13 defencemen and 20 forwards. A full list of all players attending rookie can be found at the bottom of this release. Two rookie players, Servac Petrovsky and Nikita Tiatinkin, will miss camp but join the team in early September.
In many ways this year’s camp will be similar to every other, with players participating in two practices and two scrimmages daily, however, with the recent announcement by the Ontario Hockey League to extend the leagues vaccination policy to all spectators, the Attack have made the hard decision to close all training camp activities to the general public. The Attack will show all scrimmages live on its Facebook page.
“This was a really hard decision for us to make. We know many of our fans love coming and watching training camp, but unfortunately we are just not ready to welcome them into the Bayshore at this time” said Attack President, Dr. Bob Severs. “We are working on an effective and efficient procedure for checking all those who wish to enter the Bayshore to see our games and will have it in place in time for our first pre-season home game on September 25.”
“The health and safety of our fans, players and staff is paramount” added Severs.
