The Owen Sound attack started out as the Guelph Platers in 1982. The Platers had been a club at the Tier II Jr’A’ level but there’s no real connection between the two clubs except for name and ownership. The Platers were an OHL expansion team. The name came from the owners (The Holody family) electro-plating business. They would win a Memorial Cup in 1986. At that time, the club played out of the old Memorial Gardens and the team left in 1989 to play in a much never facility in Owen Sound. They initially continued with the Platers name. The team would change their name to the Attack in 2000 when the Holody’s sold the club to local ownership. Pictured is an OHL Guelph Platers puck along with a current Attack puck.
