The Owen Sound Attack have traded a goaltender to the Oshawa Generals.
The team says in a statement goaltender Andrew MacLean has been traded to Oshawa in exchange from Kingston's 5th round selection in the 2021 Ontario Hockey League priority selection.
The deal means the Attack will enter the season with Mack Guzda and Nick Chenard between the pipes.
"It was going to be hard carrying three goalies heading into the regular season, and even tougher with two 18-year-olds that both deserve playing time," says Attack general manager Dale DeGray. "Andrew has shown that he is capable of playing in the OHL and we hope he takes full advantage of his opportunity in Oshawa. We thank him for his professionalism and dedication to the Owen Sound Attack and wish him the best of luck in his future."
MacLean, 18, was a 10th round pick of the Attack in the 2017 draft and made his debut with the team last season, compiling a 4.36 goals against average and .869 save percentage in 32 games.
The Attack continue their preseason schedule this weekend with a home-and-home set against the North Bay Battalion.
Saturday, the Attack host North Bay at 2 p.m. at the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre. Sunday, the Attack are at North Bay.
