Attack Pak Membership Rising

As interest in the Owen Sound Attack grows so does membership in the Owen Sound Attack Pak.

At the game on Wednesday, September 28 the Attack Pak registered their 300 member this season. Helen Lewis, President of the Attack Pak, says there have never been this many members so early in the season. In fact, last year the total number of members was 369 for the season.

Members of the Attack Pak receive fantastic discounts on many road trips with the team as well as exclusive admission to special events with the team. Funds raised by the Attack Pak support the team in many ways. Since July 2006 the Attack Pak has purchased $8,000 in equipment for the Owen Sound Attack dressing room including an equipment dryer, statistical computer program, and ten exercise bikes. Owen Sound Attack Director of Marketing Dave Middleton says "What the Attack Pak does for the team cannot be measured. They provide the team with the little extras that make the difference in who knows how many games during the season. They are just like having an extra player in the stands."

Fans can become members of the Attack Pak by stopping by their location above Section L at any Owen Sound Attack home game.

Hockey teams fight against MRSA

Saginaw Spirit captain Patrick McNeill's sweaty hands have company in his hockey gloves during practices and games.

A host of bacteria is along for the ride, keeping Spirit trainer Bryan Burnstein and equipment manager Jose Ortiz on their toes trying to prevent those nasty, microscopic critters from causing problems.

The biggest problem the pair tries to prevent is a staph infection, but in recent years a stronger, potentially deadly form of staph -- methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA as it's commonly known -- has charged into the world of athletics, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.

Spirit start on a down note, but they'll bounce back

Nobody said the Saginaw Spirit would go 68-0.

Nor will they finish 0-68 after an 0-2 start to the 2006-07 Ontario Hockey League season.

Despite a start that Saginaw General Manager-coach Bob Mancini and the rest of his coaching staff and players would just as soon forget, there's no panic. The many veteran players on the squad know it's a long season filled with ups and downs and if some of the dips are at the beginning, oh well, that's just the way it goes.

Wolves look for enforcers

If you ask any of the Sudbury Wolves to describe Devin DiDiomete and you'll hear variations of the same theme.

They call him a "loyal teammate, " a "heart-and-soul guy," the kind of player who "brings his workboots."

In short, he's the kind of guy they count on to have their backs on the ice.

"He's a great teammate," says defenceman Adam McQuaid. "He's definitely there to stick up for the guys because he's such a physically intimidating player."

Former NHL forward Gagner is Knights' best line of defence

The London Knights have entrusted their defence to a guy who played forward all of his 15-year NHL career.

But those are mere details for new assistant coach Dave Gagner. After all, this is a club with a top, innovative power-play structure -- and it's run by head coach Dale Hunter, one of pro hockey's all-time penalty minute leaders.

Four scraps later, defenceman returns to 67's

After literally fighting for a job with the New York Islanders, defenceman Joe Grimaldi is on his way back to the 67's. Grimaldi is expected in the lineup for Ottawa's home opener tomorrow against the Peterborough Petes, and a much-welcomed addition he should be.

Brian Kilrea's team was outscored 9-5 and outshot 38-25 in its first game of the season, last Friday in Kingston.

"Our back end should be solid now," Kilrea said yesterday. "We'll have (Derek) Joslin back, Grimaldi back, (Elgin) Reid back ... now we have to concentrate on improving at the other end of the ice."

Tlusty in AHL, Sault could be his next stop

It could have been just an innocuous statement. Or it could wind up having significant consequences for the Soo Greyhounds organization.

Who knows?

In Tuesday's edition of The Toronto Sun, Maple Leafs general manager John Ferguson hinted Jiri Tlusty could wind up playing this season for the Ontario Hockey League's Soo Greyhounds.

Ryan shows value in return;

Attack captain has goal, two assists in win over Sarnia

You've got two options if you're looking to send Bobby Ryan a card.

Either a condolence or a welcome back card would be appropriate.

The first is to ease the heartbreak of not earning a spot on the Anaheim Ducks this season. And the latter is to welcome him back into the Owen Sound Attack lineup.

Which makes most sense?

"Probably a little of both," the Attack captain said Wednesday before a triumphant return in Owen Sound's 6-3 victory over Sarnia in Ontario Hockey League action.

"It's a tough situation to be in."

He's come a long way;

Josh Moes has earned full-time employment with the Greyhounds

He may be a work in progress but, by all accounts, Josh Moes is progressing nicely.

A year after playing sparingly, the Soo Greyhounds right-winger has earned a spot alongside centre Andrew Desjardins and left-winger Brandon MacLean on the club's most-energetic line.

And so far, the 17-year-old, second-year man is fitting in well.

"He's developing into a player who can one day be an impact player in this league," said Hounds head coach Craig Hartsburg, whose club begins a three-game road trip in Windsor tonight after splitting its first two games of the season last Friday and Saturday on the road. "For a 17-year-old, he has a man's body. He's got a lot of potential."

Mantha lands on feet

What about the players? When his mind wanders back, that's the question which continues to perplex Moe Mantha.

Today marks the one-year anniversary of the fight in practice between Windsor Spitfires teammates Steve Downie and Akim Aliu, a bout which later broke the hazing scandal that threatened to scuttle the Spitfires' season.

Nearly a year to the day that news of the hazing scandal first came to light, Mantha found himself in familiar territory.

Riding a bus home from a road game.

No panic yet from 0-3 Spirit

Saginaw Spirit General Manager-coach Bob Mancini isn't ready to hit the panic button.

In fact, he and his team aren't even looking for it after the Plymouth Whalers continued Saginaw's season-opening losing streak Wednesday night, stopping the Spirit 5-1 before 2,897 in TheDow Event Center's Wendler Arena.

Just because it was Saginaw's third loss in three games to start the 2006-07 campaign doesn't make it any less or more important than, say, a three-game losing streak midway through the season.
