I was in Uptown Waterloo recently and noticed how shadows of pedestrians played across a storefront. The storefront of Capri Salon & Spa displayed three large-scale photographs of a woman's face with bangs of hair hanging over her eyes. A woman in a red coat walking past the storefront from...

1. Ladies and gentlemen, Max Domi of the London Knights. 2. There was lots of flak toward Kitchener Rangers GM Murray Hiebert when he acquired goalie Jake Paterson at the trade deadline. It looks like the man is a genius now. Paterson’s numbers — in Kitchener — are elite. His... Continue reading

Another dominant game for the Rangers and another hot goalie as well. That seems to be a recent pattern for Kitchener who lost 2-1 to the struggling Mississauga Steelheads Sunday afternoon. This time, it was Jacob Brennan doing the damage. The Rangers fired 48 shots - while giving up just... Continue reading

Good afternoon. A cold but sunny drive into 'Sauga for a matiness against the Trout. I arrived early and took my perch in the press box for one of my favourite views in the OHL, at least from working perspective. It's quiet in the barn. And it's kind of nice.... Continue reading

The Rangers look to extend their point streak to five games tonight when the Frontenacs drop in the Aud. And could tonight be the big night for rookie Mark Bzowey? The fourth line centre has gone 35 games without a goal, though he has envisioned the magic marker many times.... Continue reading

Those streaky Rangers. Win a bunch, lose a bunch and now they're back getting points yet again. Oh how they toy with the hearts of the fan base. Make it four straight games with at least one point - three wins and last night's 3-2 OT loss to London. Kitchener... Continue reading

1. Lots of talk about relocation/expansion this week. In case you missed it Flint is the destination point for the Plymouth Whalers while Burlington is exploring the feasibility of a club. I’d love to see the OHL expand to 25 teams. For fun, here is how it would break down... Continue reading

Well, I guess perfect would have been three wins in regulation, but going 3-0 - with an overtime and shootout victory - is still pretty darn good. Yes, everything is right in Rangersland. Funny how wins make the world right. Oh, you were away skiing this past weekend? Well, you... Continue reading

So, how do the Kitchener Rangers respond? The team is, after all, coming off one of its best wins of the season - a 3-2 victory against the mighty Oshawa Generals. Sometimes those emotional wins can suck the life out of you. Win tonight and it would be three in... Continue reading

There was a feeling of here we go again last night in Sarnia. Up 2-0, the Rangers gave up two goals to the Sting to send the game to extra time. But credit Kitchener for gutting out a 3-2 OT win off the blade of Frank Hora. The win was... Continue reading

I tell ya, the news never stops. Took one day off Twitter and email only to find out today that defenceman Logan Schmidt has left the team due to personal reasons. I haven't had a chance to talk with him and don't want to assume anything. But Schmidt has been... Continue reading

1. I had a longer piece in the works on the Jake Paterson deal but had to scrap it due to time and other assignments. I will say this, there hasn’t been a more polarizing move made by the club since GM Murray Hiebert took over. Two things stood out... Continue reading
