Ryan McGill doesn't have amnesia. The Owen Sound Attack coach chooses to forget about the dominant regular season that saw his team win seven of eight games against the Kitchener Rangers while outscoring their foes 40-17. When asked why it was so one-sided, the skipper drew a blank. "I don't... Continue reading

There is nothing like a good upset. That feeling of watching a superior team — on paper — bow out of the playoffs in shocking fashion. It's one of the most exciting moments in sports. The only problem, at least in the Ontario Hockey League post-season, is that it doesn't... Continue reading

There is no fancy name for the trio. "We're just the shutdown line," said Kitchener Rangers winger Jake Henderson. And like their name, the crew, which includes veteran centre Darby Llewellyn and forward Connor Bunnaman, likes to keep things simple. The back door passes and toe drags are for other...

Jay McKee knows what it's like to be overlooked. Nobody picked his Buffalo Sabres to go far in the NHL playoffs in 1999.

Adam Mascherin joined some pretty big names on the weekend when he collected his 100th point in Owen Sound. The feat - done by 26 Rangers ever - got kind of lost amid the battle for playoff positioning in the west. Mascherin came into the campaign with a goal to... Continue reading

It's official. The Kitchener Rangers are the sixth seed in the OHL's western conference. They got there with a dramatic 6-5 OT win in Guelph last night. Two games remain - at home to Erie Friday and in Owen Sound to finish the season Saturday. Both games mean a lot... Continue reading

It was another late game loss for the Rangers. This time 2-1 to the Soo Greyhounds. And it sets up an interesting week ahead. I don't think anybody pegged the fourth last game against Flint as one of the most important of the season. But it's shaping up that way.... Continue reading

I think the concern, at least from NHL scouts I was talking to Friday, is for Timpano if (when?) the Otters move on to final, Mem Cup. Parsons is proven (Mem Cup, WJ gold). Timpano has never been anywhere near that far.

The timing was good. The Oshawa Generals swamped the Kitchener Rangers in the opening 10 minutes Saturday and out-shot the visitors 12-1 but goalie Luke Richardson kept his team in the game. His performance gave the Blueshirts time to rally and the club rewarded their netminder with a 4-1 win... Continue reading
