Kitchener Rangers TicketsHeadquartered in their namesake town of Kitchener, Ontario, Canada, the Kitchener Rangers are one of the top junior hockey teams in the Western Conference leg of the Ontario Hockey League. The team has won a dizzying number of prestigious awards over the course of its nearly six decades in existence. The Rangers won the Memorial Cup in 1982 and 2003 and the J. Ross Robertson Cup in 1981, 1982, 2003 and 2008. Since they are a junior hockey team, every player on the roster is between the ages of 16 and 20. Despite the players’ extreme youth, many of them are already able to play at an extremely high level, and quite a few have had the honor of graduating to the NHL once their tenure with the Rangers has been completed.
