The Kitchener Rangers Hockey Club confirmed this morning that defenseman Ben Fanelli met with Dr. Karen Johnston in Toronto earlier this week. Ben has been participating in non-contact practice drills and off-ice workouts since mid August. Dr. Johnston has confirmed that this stage of his rehab can continue but has not cleared Ben to participate in contact drills or scrimmages.
Ben will continue his recovery with the Kitchener Rangers organization.
The Kitchener Rangers and Fanelli family will continue to provide updated information when it becomes available and will refrain from making specific comments to the media.
