TOP REGULAR SEASON TEAM – KITCHENER JR. RANGERS
It was a worst-to-first season for the Kitchener Jr. Rangers, who finished atop the Minor Hockey Alliance of Ontario standings just one year after being the only team in the nine-team league to miss the playoffs. While the Kitchener offence scored an Alliance-leading 166 goals, there was no runaway offensive star – Anthony Osterling and Conner Cole finished tied for 10th in league scoring with 38 points, the only Jr. Rangers to finish in the top 20. Overall, nine players recorded at least 20 points, and eight hit double digits in goals. On the defensive end Kitchener was once again No. 1, giving up a league-low 74 goals, 14 less than any other team. Not surprisingly, netminder Tanner Topham led the league in wins (17) and goals-against average (2.14), and his .921 save percentage was good for second.
