The Owen Sound Attack whittled down their three-headed goaltending monster Thursday in a deal with the Oshawa Generals.
Dale DeGray shipped Port Huron native Andrew MacLean to the Gennies for a fifth-round pick in 2021. The pick was originally the property of the Kingston Frontenacs.
MacLean won the Attack’s back-up job out of training camp in 2018 and played 32 games with the organization, winning 11.
He recorded a goals-against-average of 4.36 in those 32 appearances and a save percentage of .869.
MacLean earned OHL Player of the Week honours this past December when he won three-straight games, including one shutout victory, with a goals-against-average of 1.67 and a save percentage of .953 before the Christmas break.
“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. 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,” DeGray said in a team press release.
Mack Guzda and rookie goaltender Nick Chenard, 17, remain as the Attack’s options between the pipes going forward.
