KSA's "Rangers" Night 

with GM Murray Hiebert

Murray joined the Rangers as a scout in 2001, and most recently served as the Rangers Director of Scouting. He has played a major role in player recruitment, and has been responsible for overseeing the Rangers’ OHL Priority Selection. 

Prior to his time with the Rangers, Murray was a scout for the Plymouth Whalers under former Rangers coaches Steve Spott and Pete DeBoer from 1998-2001. Murray also has served as a scout with the Waterloo Siskins, the London Knights, the Sudbury Wolves and with the expansion of the St. Michael’s Majors.

Murray filled attendees in on the Rangers "business" and answered questions - even ones about the upcoming "playoff run." Always an interesting evening!

Rick Weinstein (KSA Director in charge of the 50/50 draw) gave an update on the 50/50 draw.  Fundraising success (sales) runs in tandem with the on-ice success of the Rangers. The implementation of a portable electronic sales/control system is still very much "up in the air" due to complicated licencing and regulatory requirements.

Ashlyn Riehl & Tyanna Venture (players on the Woolwich U14 Girls Soccer team), Chris Riehl (team manager) and Colin Ridge (assistant coach) thanked KSA for providing a travel grant to help with the team's expenses incurred when it competed at the Nationals in Newfoundland. (Group photo)

A great meal and lots of discussion before, during and after dinner!
