Knights Shutout Rangers

Rangers Wear Remembrance Day Jerseys Against Spitfires

Goaltender Anthony Stolarz made 35 saves for the London Knights on Thursday, shutting out the Kitchener Rangers 3-0. With the win, the Knights even out the season series at one win apiece.

The Knight struck first, finding the back of the net 2:28 into the opening frame. Vancouver Canucks prospect Bo Horvat collected a rebound in front of Rangers netminder Tyson Teichmann, chipping it over his blocker to collect his sixth goal of the season. Waterloo native Kyle Platzer and defenceman Alex Basso were credited with assists on the play.

London held an early advantage in shots on goal, leading 13-9 in the frame.

Max Domi's power play goal in the early moments of the second period pushed the Knights to a 2-0 lead. Teichmann turned aside a hard shot by Horvat, but the third year London winger picked it up off the goalie's pads, finding a gap short-side and burying his second of the year. Horvat's assist moved him into a tie for the top spot in team scoring with 13 points. Josh Anderson also picked up a helper on Domi's second goal in three games.

The Knights continued to out-shoot the Rangers in the second by a 16-14 margin.

An empty net goal from Chris Tierney sealed a 3-0 win for the Knights. The fourth year centre sent a long shot the length of the ice to collect his sixth of the season, tying him with Horvat for London's scoring lead.

London out-shot Kitchener 18-12 in the third period, finishing with a 47-35 overall advantage. Teichmann made 44 saves in his eighth start for the Rangers.

Rangers Wear Remembrance Day Jersey Friday October 25th

The 2013 Kitchener Rangers Remembrance Day Jersey will be worn on Friday, October 25 when the Rangers host the Windsor Spitfires at 7:30pm. This is the ninth year that the Rangers have worn a commemorative jersey, each with a unique design in tribute to over 700,000 veterans and members of the Canadian Forces. The game-worn jerseys will only be available for fans to own through silent auction during the game.

The 2013 Remembrance Day Commemorative Jersey pays homage to the Royal Canadian Air Force, its service men and women, and its tremendous hockey legacy. After local hockey heroes Bobby Bauer, Milt Schmidt and Woody Dumart (the ‘Kraut Line’) put their hockey careers on hold and enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1942, they joined the Ottawa RCAF hockey team, leading them to victory in the 1942 Allen Cup. Named the Greatest Military Athletes of the 20th Century, the 1948 Ottawa RCAF Flyers won the Gold Medal at the Winter Olympics in St. Moritz, Switzerland.

This year’s sweater colours are inspired by the jerseys worn by athletes like Bauer, Schmidt and Dumart, and the numbers and font are replicas of those found on RCAF aircraft and ships.

Fans may bid on these special jerseys through a silent auction during the game on Friday, October 25. Bidding will start at 6:00pm and close 10 minutes after the end of the game. Winners will be notified by telephone. All proceeds from the auction will benefit the 78th Fraser Highlanders Fort Conestoga Garrison and the Kitchener-Waterloo Poppy Fund. Over the past eight years, the Rangers commemorative jersey auctions have raised more than $200,000 for various beneficiaries.

In addition to unveiling the new 2013 Remembrance Day Jersey, fans will have the opportunity to remember the sweaters of years past in a special display in our Hall of History. The Remembrance Day jersey exhibit opens Friday at 6:00pm for ticket holders, and will remain on display in the Hall of History through November 11.

We also ask that fans attending the game wear red in support of our troops and to pay tribute to our veterans.

Reserved seating tickets may be purchased by phone at 519-578-1570 or 1-800-265-8977 , via the internet, in person at the Aud Box Office or Centre in the Square Box Office.
