Owen Sound Attack goaltender Mack Guzda has been named the OHL ‘On the Run’ Player of the Week.

He’s the first netminder to win the weekly award, posting a 3-0 record, 2.59 goals-against average and .927 save percentage.

It was a busy four days for Guzda, that started with a 26 save outing in a 4-3 shootout win over Kitchener, followed up by a career-high 47-save showing on Friday night in London, helping the heavily outshot Attack get past the Knights 5-4 in overtime. Guzda was the first star of Saturday’s 4-1 win over the visiting Soo Greyhounds, making 28 saves as the Attack were outshot once again.

After going undrafted in 2019, Guzda is eligible for the 2020 NHL Draft.

Additionally, Guzda is a back-to-back recipient of the OHL’s Ivan Tennant Memorial Award presented to the league’s top academic secondary school student.

Also considered for the award this week was Peterborough Petes defenceman Declan Chisholm. The Winnipeg Jets prospect recorded a goal and four assists over three road games as the Petes played to a 2-1 record. Guzda’s Attack teammate Barret Kirwin was also in the running after putting up five points (3-2–5) along with a plus-6 rating over three victories, scoring the overtime winner in Friday’s victory over London.
