The OHL has added a third draft. This one targets major midget players and will last four rounds - five if you choose a goalie. The idea behind the draft is to give late bloomers something to play for while also boosting struggling midget programs across Ontario. I'm not sure... Continue reading

NHL Central Scouting released its midterm rankings for the upcoming NHL draft and several Rangers (and prospects) were on the list. North American skaters: 39 - F Greg Meireles (in photo) 64 - Draft pick D Tyler Inamoto, USNTDP 100 - F Dylan Seitz 121 - Draft pick F Jacob... Continue reading

Rippon does not want to play in Kitchener so trading his rights is the best option.

What a comeback last night. For the second time in five days the Rangers rallied with fewer than two minutes to go and the goalie yanked to tie the Windsor Spitfires and earn a point or more in extra time. They lost in the shootout last Thursday but won last... Continue reading

So it's game two between the Rangers and Spits since the teams swapped players a week back. (Windsor won the first one 3-2 in a shootout). Here is an interesting stat heading into the match - Cole Carter has as many points (two) with the Rangers as Jeremy Bracco has... Continue reading

I've been inundated with correspondence since the OHL trade deadline. The general consensus among Rangers fans is that they are happy (for the most part) with the returns GM Murray Hiebert got for the three players he moved - Jeremy Bracco, Mason Kohn and Jacob Cascagnette. But many are left... Continue reading

The four game losing skid is ancient history. The Kitchener Rangers have now won two straight and have a winnable week ahead with tilts against Windsor, Guelph and Ottawa, all in the comfy confines of the Aud. The Blueshirts bested two teams going in different directions this past weekend with... Continue reading

Adam Mascherin, your OHL scoring leader - 27 goals, 44 assists, 71 points in 40 games. As for last night, the Rangers snapped a four game losing streak and Jonathan Yantsis made his OHL debut. Continue reading

Glancing at the photo to the right still takes some getting used to for both the Rangers and Spitfires. It certainly was odd seeing Jeremy Bracco set up Kitchener's opponents and then take a stab on the shootout. Goalie Luke Opilka made the save but couldn't stop Gabe Vilardi as... Continue reading

It's a busy scene at the WFCU Centre since tonight's game is on Sportsnet. Obviously the tilt also marks the return of Andrew Burns and Cole Carter who were traded to Kitchener for Jeremy Bracco earlier this week. The Rangers are coming into the game as losers of three straight... Continue reading

Bob Dylan and David Bowie songs have been playing in my head. Yes, there has been a lot of change on East Avenue this week. To recap: Mason Kohn was dealt to Oshawa. Jeremy Bracco went to Windsor. Jacob Cascagnette joined the Fish. And new Rangers Andrew Burns and Cole... Continue reading

Count this one as a surprise. Gritty forward Mason Kohn was dealt to the Oshawa Generals for a 2nd (2019), 3rd (2021) and a conditional 3rd (2022) this morning. The last pick kicks in if Kohn plays his overage year. The 19-year-old was shocked to be moved and it was... Continue reading

What a wild day. First Jacob Cascagnette goes to Mississauga. Then Jeremy Bracco is dealt to Memorial Cup hosts the Windsor Spitfires. It’s a challenge weeding through all the information as it breaks, especially with social media involved. But it’s also an absolute blast. Here are some thoughts now that... Continue reading

The Kitchener Rangers have dealt one of their biggest offensive weapons. The Ontario Hockey League club sent world junior hockey championship gold medalist Jeremy Bracco to the Windsor Spitfires Monday evening. In return the Rangers received defenceman Andrew Burns, forward Cole Carter, second round draft picks in 2023 and 2024... Continue reading

Jacob Cascagnette has been traded to the Mississauga Steelheads. The Kitchener Rangers dealt the local boy to the Fish today for a third round draft pick in 2020 and a conditional fourth. The Blueshirts selected Cascagnette in the fourth round of the 2013 draft. The 19-year-old was in his fourth... Continue reading

Things are beginning to heat up. The trade deadline is tomorrow at noon. Lots of things percolating and I'll be sure to post updates when things firm up. As for last night, the Rangers fell to the Attack for the fourth time this season. Owen Sound won its 10th straight... Continue reading

Jeremy Bracco is out for the game. And before the conspiracy theorists go crazy, I'm told it is legit. He was throwing up, not that anyone needs that visual. He also took a shoot off the foot in the world junior final. It doesn't mean the Rangers won't move Bracco,... Continue reading

Tis the season. It's OHL Christmas for fans - at least those wanting to see their respective clubs shed talent for the future or acquire big names to make a run at the championship. And the rumours are already flying. The Rangers have been playing well recently and have picked... Continue reading

Kitchener Rangers winger Jeremy Bracco and his American teammates take on the Canucks for world junior gold tonight in Montreal. It has been quite the ride to the final for the New Yorker. Bracco scored in the shootout to keep the United States alive in last night's 4-3 win against... Continue reading

What a guy that Frank Hora. He waits until everyone else scores a goal before getting one of his own. And it was the game winner in last night's 5-2 victory against Guelph too. Of course that wasn't the plan but it's a nice coincidence and made Hora chuckle when... Continue reading

Greg Meireles got a birthday gift in last night's win over the Erie Otters. And the Rangers were also treated to a much needed win over an elite squad. Sure, the Otters were missing key players but so was Kitchener. It was a convincing win for the Rangers and keeps... Continue reading

Lost in last night's celebrations (read here: to bed before midnight) was a big trade between Peterborough and Sarnia. The Petes are riding a 10-game winning streak and intend on being players in the east. Last night they pulled the trigger on a deal that saw them add F Nikita... Continue reading
