Kitchener Rangers Bracket Challenge

Bracket_Header

From May 4th to June 1st, 2020, we asked #RTown who they think is the best all-time Rangers player. A lot of time and consideration went into compiling a 64-player bracket because a number of incredible players have worn the Rangers jersey over the past 57 seasons.

The players were divided into four divisions representing the 15-season period in which they played (1963-1978, 1978-1993, 1993-2008, 2008-2020).

After six rounds of head-to-head voting on Twitter, former captain Michael Richards was named the winner of the Rangers Bracket Challenge!

Taking on Al MacInnis in a three-day final vote, Richards came out victorious by a 68%-32% margin. Drafted 24th overall by the Philadelphia Flyers in the summer of 2003, Richards still ranks in the Rangers’ all-time top ten for total assists (183) and points (292).
