RANGERS YEAR END ROUNDUP

Well once again another season has come and gone and we are starting to prepare for next season. We had a great second half of the season and when it was all over we were only 5 points out of a playoff spot. At this time we have to say goodbye to our 20 year olds and we would like to thank them for their valuable service and leadership of the Rangers this year.

We had 2 players in the top point-getters of the league with our captain Greg Janz in 3rd and Max Verroneau in 5th. We also had many of your young rookies who really improved over the season and we are looking for great things from them this upcoming season.

One of the things we are most proud of this season is that we had three of our young talented players who received scolarships : Matt Foget to Merrimack, Ryan Kuffner toPrinceton and most recently Max Veronneau who also received a NCAA scholarship to Princeton. We also have Connor McLaren who will be going to Princeton this year on a full NCAA scholarship. Education is an important part of our program and we encourage our players not only to play hockey to the best of their ability but also that education is an important part of their future.

Our coach Sylvain Favreau is always encouraging our young players to excel both in hockey and in their education. He has worked hard with our players and their parents in obtaining these scholarships. Sylvain himself received a NCAA scholarship when he played hockey and went on to play hockey for several years in Europe before returning behind the bench for the Rangers.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of our players, volunteers and fans for their hard work & support throughout the season and we look forward to a very successful season in the 2014-15 season.

Paul Jennings, Owner & General Manager

CONNOR McLAREN HEADING TO PRINCETON

The Gloucester Rangers are pleased to announce that Connor McLaren will be attending Princeton University on a NCAA Division 1 scholarship this fall. Connor was an assistant captain of the Rangers this season and provided leadership and mentoring to our players, especially our rookies.

Connor started his minor hockey career as a member of the Gloucester Rangers Minor Hockey Association. He then went on to play AAA major bantam with the Jr 67s and then in 2008 he played for the Cyclones of the Upper Canada Minor Midget AAA and caught the eye of the Ottawa Jr Sens of the CCHL and at 16 was drafted and played with them.

Connor played for 3 teams in the CCHL starting with the Jr Sens and then spent 2 Ĺ years with the Smith Falls Bears. He was captain of their team and was one of their top players amassing 138 points while playing for them. Because of an injury, Connor played only 15 games with the JrA Rangers this season but the overtime goal he scored for the team against the Brockville Braves on his last game which provided a win for the Rangers was a highlight of his career. "I donít remember ever scoring an overtime winning goal." says Connor "What a way to finish my time with the Rangers. I am happy to have started and ended my hockey career with the Rangers organization."

"We couldnít have asked for more from Connor. His maturity and hockey skills made us a better team when he was on the ice. On behalf of the Gloucester Rangers Jr A hockey management, coaches, team members, volunteers & fans we thank him for his contribution to our team and wish him all the best as he heads to Princeton this fall. Ľ states Paul Jennings. ę We will be following Connorís hockey career at Princeton and know that he will be successful in whatever career he decides to pursue."

RANGERS START OFF 2014 WITH WINNING RECORD

After struggling in the early part of the season the Rangers seem to have found the winning touch coming out on top in their first 4 games of the new year. This has been a complete team effort with everyone contributing to their success.

Greg Jansz and Max Veronneau have both found the golden touch and are in the top 10 scorers of the league with Matt Rosebrook & our rookies Matt Foget and Ryan Kuffner not far behind.

The goal tending tandem of Skidmore & Johnson have held the team in there and given them a chance to win every game. The defense has stepped up and has been playing really strong hockey throughout the last month which has also contributed to the recent success of the team.

Greg Jansz, the recently appointed captain of the Rangers says, "This team has seemed to come together at the right time giving us a good shot at making the playoffs as long as we keep working hard towards that goal. We are focused and everyone is giving 100% and I think that has helped us win games."

Coach Sylvain Favreau is proud of the turn around of the team and is committed to helping the players keep this winning streak alive. "Even at practice I can see the new enthusium and attention to detail of the players and I will do everything I can to have them prepared for the upcoming games ", says Favreau.

Paul Jennings, the manager & owner of the team is very proud not only of the recent success of the team but would like to take this opportunity to congratulate two of our rookies who have received scholarships this season. "Matt Foget has received a scholarship to Merrimack and Ryan Kuffner has earned a scholarship to Princeton. Congrats boys. Hopefully, the way our team is playing now we may get one or two more scholarships before the end of the season."
