Rangers Edged by Barrie in Shootout
It was the Rangers first exhibition game on the road on Saturday - as the Blueshirts travelled to Barrie for a 7:30 pm start at Sadlon Arena.
Kitchener was missing many familiar faces as Francesco Pinelli, Declan McDonnell, Simon Motew, Roman Schmidt, and Arber Xhekaj are all attending NHL Prospect Camps.
Kitchener rookie Carson Rehkopf scored first for the Rangers once again in this matchup - and tallied 3 points (2G, 1A), going 10-for-15 in the faceoff circle. Mitchell Martin also scored twice.
Czech goaltender Pavel Cajan made his debut in the OHL pre-season by making 32 saves on 36 shots.
Last minute goals from the Barrie ColtsÂ forced a shootout where Del Monte would score the winner.
