The Kitchener Rangers are seeking individuals who want to be a part of a fast-paced community environment and help us deliver an unforgettable experience to #RTown.
In 1963, Eugene George and a group of Kitchener businessmen brought the Guelph Royals, a farm team of the NHL’s New York Rangers, to Kitchener and renamed them the Kitchener Rangers Junior “A” Hockey Club.
The New York Rangers’ sponsorship of the team ended in 1967 with the expansion of the NHL’s “Original Six’” Era, so on July 7, 1967, George agreed to purchase the team from the New York Rangers for a sum of one dollar. He declined the opportunity for private ownership but instead turned the team over to the community through the creation of a not-for-profit organization.
To this day there is not one, lone “owner” of the club; instead, a 39-person Board of Directors is elected by the club’s season ticket members each year to act as the “trustees” of the storied franchise. This Board of Directors is comprised entirely and only of Kitchener Rangers’ season ticket members.
Since the Club’s inception in 1963, the Kitchener Rangers have seen over 180+ former players earn their way to the National Hockey League. They have also produced 156 players selected by teams in the NHL Entry Draft; 28 of those players were selected in the first round.
