A few items for an off-day. * First, the OHL has slapped North Bay forward Mathew Santos with a four game suspension for his check from behind on Kitchener's Darby Llewellyn in the Rangers' 4-2 win this past Thursday. Llewellyn escaped the hit unscathed and finished the game. * Defenceman... Continue reading

All right, let’s see if I can spit this out for another season. Yes, it’s the return of the OHL 10, a weekly feature looking at the news, stats, accomplishments and sometimes wacky world of the Ontario Hockey League. As always, there will be a focus on the Kitchener Rangers... Continue reading

Off the grid a bit here – as far as Rangers news goes – but wanted to pass this along. A few weeks ago I went to South Korea to do a story on New Hamburg native Brock Radunske. The 32-year-old one-time Edmonton Oilers draft pick has spent the past... Continue reading

A big road win for the Rangers last night and Kitchener will look to keep it going against Sudbury (1-1) tonight. Ryan MacInnis returned after starting the season at Arizona Coyotes camp and made an immediate impact in the 4-2 win. Beyond the stats, just having him on the ice... Continue reading

I'm not quite sure what the Rangers did to deserve a fall road trip north but I'll take it. Tonight it's North Bay (0-2) and tomorrow the Rangers get the Sudbury Wolves (1- 1). And yes, we're just one game into the season but how about Jacob Cascagnette (in photo)?... Continue reading

Christine Rivet, Record staff KITCHENER - One of the top volleyball players this country has ever produced had one glaring omission on her resumé. Until now. Kitchener native Sarah Pavan recently booked her passage to next summer's Rio Olympics. At least she's pretty sure she has. "Mathematically, it looks like... Continue reading

Defenceman Dmitrii Sergeev will not make the trip north this week to face North Bay and Sudbury. The Russian import continues to nurse a sore shoulder sustained when he was hit from behind during rookie camp with the St. Louis Blues. The NHL team has been treating the blueliner but...

A few thoughts now that we've had a day to let the season opener marinate. First, it was a disappointing 5-4 overtime loss to Owen Sound, who aren't exactly supposed to be world beaters this season. But as mentioned on game day, it's early and the team got a point.... Continue reading

It all starts tonight. Let's hope for a packed house at the Aud as the Rangers welcome the Owen Sound Attack. Yes, it's time to see what this year's squad looks like when it counts. And it'll be a full lineup minus F Ryan MacInnis (Arizona) and D Dmitrii Sergeev... Continue reading

Doubt he'll stay there. It's just because Mac won't play Friday.

It's only the third line that has no natural C. Mascherin was one in midget. They're high on Cascagnette so far while Davies has been rather silent.

There has been a lot of change behind the benches in the OHL's western conference. Six new coaches - including Mike Van Ryn in Kitchener - take over as the season gets under way tonight with a trio of games. On the ice, it's a familiar story - the London... Continue reading

It has been a rough off-season for Niagara IceDogs boss Marty Williamson. The skipper persevered through severe health issues but is back behind the bench at the Meridian Centre. His club is the team to beat in the OHL's eastern conference. And from what I'm hearing they expect to be... Continue reading

I’m back from an assignment overseas and ready to lock in to the Rangers. The season starts Friday when the Blueshirts face the Owen Sound Attack in the opener at the Aud. Kitchener went 3-5 against the Attack last season but two of those losses were in the shootout. Those... Continue reading

Dan Lebold is an institution at the Aud. Nobody on the hockey side has been there longer than the Kitchener Rangers trainer. The Stratford native is entering his 21st season with the Ontario Hockey League club. He also spent three years with the Sudbury Wolves before being hired on East... Continue reading

Kitchener Rangers defenceman Connor Hall received a 10-game suspension for his head hit on Niagara forward Ben Jones. The rookie will miss the next two exhibition games and eight regular season contests. Hall received a match penalty for checking to the head when he hit Jones at centre ice at... Continue reading

Hope the weekend was swell. Here is some Monday morning reading. Former Kitchener Rangers forward Jimmy Soper was picked by teammates to be the captain of the Truro Bearcats in the Maritime Hockey League. The Waterloo native played 50 games for the Rangers in 2013-14. Another shutout for Rangers goalie... Continue reading

The Kitchener Rangers have added some future depth up front by acquiring forward Jacob Tortora from the Barrie Colts for four draft picks. Tortora was selected 19th overall in this year's Ontario Hockey League draft but is committed to USA Hockey's national team development program for the next two years.... Continue reading

It's farewell to some familiar faces, at least for about a week. Five Kitchener Rangers have been invited to NHL rookie camps - Ryan MacInnis (Arizona), Luke Opilka (St. Louis), Nick Magyar (Colorado), Dmitrii Sergeev (St. Louis) and Mason Kohn (Florida). The first three are drafted players while Sergeev inked... Continue reading

At the Aud and ready for Game 2 of the pre-season quietly typing away and then the big news breaks. First rounder Greg Meireles is indeed coming to Kitchener, sort of. He has signed as an affiliate player which means he can only play 10 games for the club this... Continue reading

Change is coming. The OHL made four rule changes in the off-season, none bigger than going to three-on-three in overtime. It'll mean quicker games and fewer shootouts. The statistics back that up. It also means a change in strategy as Kitchener Rangers coach Mike Van Ryn points out. The move... Continue reading

Hot outside. Cold inside. It's always a weird time of the year. But it's a sensation that means hockey is back. And here I sit in the pressbox at the Aud about an hour before the Fish take on the Rangers in exhibition action. Cuts still need to be made... Continue reading

The axe fell today at training camp for 13 players. Only players under contract remain at the Aud. It was a tough year to be a walk on as there are few jobs to be had. Those released today included: Goalie: Jonah Capriotti Defence: Nick Durajlija, Colin Felix and Alex... Continue reading

Forward Adam Mascherin came to Kitchener with much fanfare. It's part of the deal when you are the second overall selection in the OHL draft. It's a stigma that will follow Mascherin throughout his junior career and he's OK with that. But as the Maple native says that's the past... Continue reading
