For the opening weeks of the OHL season, things didn’t go as planned for Grande Pointe’s Deni Goure. He was buried in the Owen Sound Attack’s lineup, and wasn’t finding opportunities to showcase his dynamic skillset, the same skillset that saw him drafted 10th overall in last year’s OHL Priority Selection Draft.

Then, things changed. Goure started finding the back of the net, and he climbed Owen Sound’s lineup into a scoring role. Now, he looks not only like the 10th overall OHL pick, but a potential NHL pick for next season.

“I feel like I started to get some more opportunities and I was getting more comfortable which turned into some success,” Goure said about the second half of his OHL season.

When it was all said and done, the Chatham-Kent Cyclones alumni finished the year with 11 goals and 25 points in 62 games.

He was even named the Owen Sound Attack’s Rookie of the Year.

“I feel like my first season was a good one. I learned a lot and was able to have some success which will help going into next season.”

That continued growth, and confidence will go a long way toward making Goure into an offensive star in the OHL.

With the OHL season cancelled, Goure’s focus is already on preparing for next season, and reaching his goals.

“The ultimate goal next season would obviously to be drafted, but also for our team to be able to get in the playoffs and win a few rounds,” he said. “Also, another goal for me is I would like to have 40+ points.”

If Goure picks up where he left off, he’ll reach and surpass those goals.
