Jake Paterson still doesn't understand why Terry Trafford took his own life. "He was a jokester in the room, kind of a goofball who kept the mood light," the Kitchener Rangers goalie said. "Then something like this happens. No one really saw it coming at all." A year ago at... Continue reading

This article originally published in the Waterloo Region Record March 4 For Team Ontario's Mark Kean, this Brier is about taking it all in. "I'm just having so much fun out there. I don't feel any pressure, and I think that's shown in how I played," said Kean, skip of... Continue reading

1. There is a northern dynasty brewing in the Ontario Hockey League. I’m taking of course about the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds. Why a dynasty you ask? Well, the Soo might just be lining itself up for back-to-back titles. If you want a glance at what the ‘Hounds might look... Continue reading

The Kitchener Rangers have lost a season worst five consecutive games. The team hasn't won at the Sleeman Centre in almost two years. And the chances of finishing fourth - or even fifth - in the OHL's western conference are slipping away. All this basically means it wasn't a good... Continue reading

Call this game critical. Never mind that the Kitchener Rangers have lost four straight. If the Rangers want to catch the Guelph Storm for home ice advantage, the team needs to win Sunday's match. It’s one of three against the Storm in the remaining 10 contests. Take all three and... Continue reading

Returning to the Aud is always a big deal for local hockey players. And it’s no different for Waterloo native Kyle Wood, a defenceman with the North Bay Battalion. Wood has been in the league for parts of three seasons but this will be his debut on East Avenue. And... Continue reading

Tired and undermanned. That was the story as the Kitchener Rangers blew a three goal lead in a 4-3 shootout loss to the London Knights last night at the Aud. The Rangers were missing three big pieces in the back end - Liam Maaskant (suspension), Max Iafrate (suspension) and Dmitrii... Continue reading

Mason Kohn isn’t having the offensive season he had hoped for. The gritty forward has just 12 points so far after putting up 22 as a rookie last season. A series of injuries haven’t helped his campaign. But the Floridian is finding other ways to make a difference. His energy,... Continue reading

It's getting to that time. With a dozen games to go in the regular season, the Kitchener Rangers need 5.5 wins and/or Windsor Spitfire losses to clinch a playoff berth. The .5 portion is an overtime or shootout loss for the Spits or Rangers. Bascially, you can punch the playoff... Continue reading

A tough 2-1 loss last night for the Kitchener Rangers. The team played well but was stoned by goalie Samuel Tanguay for the third time this season. Not sure what it is with this Frenchman but he has Kitchener's number. The loss is a setback. You need to put the... Continue reading

There is a pre-qualifying round at the Hearts and the Brier this year, but Nunavut is having none of it. Nunavut declined invitations to take a stab at the nation's premier curling events.

Hey, the Kitchener Rangers won on the road in regulation. That's a first since Nov. 30. And what a fine performance it was. The top line was absolutely sizzling and accounted for four goals in a 5-1 rout over the North Bay Battalion. It was a solid effort from top... Continue reading

The lads left last night for North Bay. Tonight, they kick off a three in three in the cold - or colder - part of the province. First up is the Battalion led by coach/GM Stan Butler, who is the OHL's active leader in wins with 604. The bench boss... Continue reading

It took more than two years, but the Belleville Bulls finally found a way to sneak one past goalie Jake Paterson. In fact, they snuck three past him before the veteran was pulled in favour of backup Dawson Carty in a 6-2 loss yesterday at the Yardmen Arena. It might... Continue reading

Fire up the bus. First stop Belleville. Then two days off and another three roadies to North Bay, Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie from Thursday to Saturday. I think if the Kitchener Rangers come back with a 2-2 record you can call it a success. Anything more is a bonus.... Continue reading

First puzzle at the Hearts is the prequalifying system. Not sure why the final berth for the Tournament of Hearts hasn't already gone to Northern Ontario's Tracy Horgan after she went 2-0 in the pre-qualifying round-robin facing Sarah Koltun of Yukon and Kerry Galusha of the Northwest Territories. Galusha then... Continue reading
