 Players to Watch

Guelph Storm

Owen Sound

Barrett Kirwin will play against his former team for the first time in his career after playing 159 games for the Storm and producing 61 career points in that time. Barrett drafted by the Storm in the 6th round of the 2016 OHL Draft is a speedy hard working player that isn’t afraid to into the corners and will be a valuable player for the Owen Sound Attack going forward.
