The Owen Sound Attack are excited to announce that they have signed 2021 Ontario Hockey League Priority Selection third round 47th overall pick Thomas Chafe to a standard player agreement. The Attack have now received commitment for the 2021-22 season from the top-3 picks from both the 2020 and 2021 OHL Priority Selection.
The native of Ottawa, Ontario is very excited to get started and see what being a member of the Attack organization is all about.
“Signing my player agreement with Owen Sound is such an awesome feeling and I want to thank everyone who helped me get here” said Chafe. “I am thrilled to be part of such a fantastic organization.”
“This fall I am looking forward to meeting my teammates, becoming a part of the Owen Sound community and playing in front of the best fans in the league!” added Chafe.
