Attack Draw 8th Pick in OHL Priority Selection Lottery

The Owen Sound Attack landed the 8th pick in the 2021 OHL Priority Selection Lottery.  The OHL Priority Selection presented by Real Canadian Superstore will take place online with rounds 1-3 taking place on Friday, June 4th and rounds 4-15 on Saturday, June 5th.

The Attack have selected eighth overall six times most recently in 2014 when the Attack took Victor Mete, who later was traded and turned into the likes of current Montreal Canadien Nick Suzuki.   Current Attack Assistant Coach and Assistant General Manger Joey Hishon will be able to share his knowledge of being an eighth overall pick with the Attack having taken him in the 2007 draft.  Other eighth overall picks include, Shane Kenny (1993), Dave Stephenson (1997), Michael D’Orazio (2006) and Jacob Middleton (2012).

The Attack brass were also paying close attention to where a couple of other OHL clubs landed during the lottery.  Heading into the 2021 draft, the Attack hold the Guelph Storms third round pick and the Kingston Frontenacs fifth round pick and with both teams landing in the top five the Attack will hold two early picks in each of those rounds.

“I think this was a good night for us” said Attack General Manager Dale DeGray.   “We are picking in the top-10, which is a better position than we are used to and I am very confident we will get a good player that will fit our brand of hockey.”
