Kitchener, ON – It was the start of the Rangers 57th season at The Aud on Friday night as they played host to the Saginaw Spirit.
It was a back-and-forth game that saw the Spirit take the lead three separate times just for the Rangers to find a way to tie it up. In the end, it was the Rangers, in overtime, who earned themselves the win, 5-4, on a Ryan Stepien goal.
Jonathan Yantsis scored twice, and Reid Valade and Francesco Pinelli each scored as well. Liam Hawel, the newest Ranger, earned three assists and was a plus three on the night.
Jacob Ingham stopped 39 of 43 shots in the win.
