Maybe we should start calling it the Robby Fabbri club. That'd be guys that the Rangers acquire but never actually play for the club. American Jacob Tortora is the latest member. The Rangers got the rights to the one-time prized prospect in September of 2015 for a 15th round pick... Continue reading

At times, the Kitchener Rangers look like a club that is developing into a contender. Scoring is spread out, the team plays tight defensively and great goaltending rules the crease. Those days give general manager Mike McKenzie hope. Now, with the team a third of the way through the season,... Continue reading

Nick McHugh never saw it coming. The Kitchener Rangers forward had just finished a shift and was sitting on the team's bench talking to the coaching staff when the puck smacked him in the face against the Guelph Storm about a month back. "I wasn't watching the play," said the... Continue reading

JB: You may be right. But the team and management sure don't feel that way. And as long as they're saying the want to be competitive and feel they are a playoff bound team, adding one more experienced (and affordable) body would help and wouldn't jeopardize the future.

JB: Thanks, fixed. I hear ya. But the young guys are playing. I don't think getting one OA is going to threaten their development and they do have the spot. If they keep fading, it will be moot as, like you said, it will make more sense to trade some vets.

Kitchener Rangers coach Jay McKee hasn't had a full lineup in a couple of weeks.

The pair... Continue reading

It's the third annual "get off my lawn" column. You know, the time of year where I pretend to be Ontario Hockey League Commish David Branch and revolutionize the league with my awesome ideas. I'm not saying the mustachioed one reads my rants, but the league did adopt two of... Continue reading

Ex-Rangers goalie Luke Opilka is hanging up his pads. The Effingham, Illinois native played two seasons for the Kitchener Rangers going 40-24-5-3. Injuries, specifically hip problems, plagued Opilka and ultimately led to his decision to retire from hockey. "I want to thank the St. Louis Blues, my hometown team, for... Continue reading

Jay McKee didn't hold back. The normally reserved Kitchener Rangers coach wasn't impressed with the effort from his veteran players in Sunday afternoon's 5-1 loss to the London Knights and called some of them out by name. The grievance list was long. "(Greg) Meireles took two bad penalties," said the... Continue reading

Will Cuylle was a can't-miss prospect. The Toronto Marlboros star was fast, strong and owned a deadly shot. And at six-foot-two, the budding power forward had all 20 Ontario Hockey League teams salivating before last April's draft. Peterborough Petes general manager Mike Oke, who owned the third overall selection, was... Continue reading
