Yes, we're three games into exhibition play. And, yes, it is exhibition hockey. But the early returns are good for the Kitchener Rangers in between the pipes. Goaltending is the biggest question mark heading into the season and - so far - it has looked strong. In three games the... Continue reading

It was fitting that Mike Davies returned to action last night for the Kitchener Rangers. After all, the club was playing in Beamsville, a stone's throw or so away from his hometown of Thorold. The Rangers got off to a 2-0 lead but lost 3-2 in a shootout, though it... Continue reading

First impressions of the Town of Lincoln Community Complex (naming rights still for sale BTW) are great. I have a seat, wireless and the barn still has that new car smell. I'm told tonight's tilt between Kitchener and Niagara is the first "major" event in the rink. And, so far,... Continue reading

The team at the Aud is on the case but the ice issues remain. Maintenance crews have idenitfied the area of the leaky pipe but can't find the leak itself, which could be as small as a pin point. The Rangers are confident all will be fixed by Wednesday's exhibition... Continue reading
