This past weekend we saw and heard, Riley Kidney's name being called in the 2021 NHL Entry Draft. Riley played for the Rangers from 2016-2018 and played a huge role in our Championship Title 2016-2017 as a rookie. During his second season, Riley was our team captain, finshed the regular season with 80 points and help lead our team to a 2nd place finish at League Championships. Riley went on to play for the Cole Harbor Wolfpack U18 Major and represent Nova Scotia at Canada Winter Games in 2019 and is currently with the Acadie-Bathurst Titans of the QMJHL Riley becomes the 3rd player from our program to get drafted to the NHL, as he joins Evan Fitzpatrick (St.Louis Blues 2016, 2nd round  59th overall) and Ryan Francis (Calgary Flames 2020, 5th round 143 overall) in hearing their names being called. Amazing weekend for Riley and his family and congrats to all the other Nova Scotian players to hear their names called. #NSPROUD #PROUDOFOURALUMNI #RANGERPRIDE #HNS

Children's Wish Game

Each year the Children's Wish Foundation teams up with the Nova Scotia Major Bantam Hockey League to help raise funds that will help grant a child's wish. Kyle is living with Cystic Fibrosis, a severe progressive disease that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system. This didn't slow Kyle down as he spent time with the Rangers and got involved in all the activities with finding time to enjoying a Cheeseburger and fries while watching the Rangers go onto victory over the Valley Wildcats. The Ranger families, friends and the help of Virgin Radio Megan Coady who MC the event, held a bake sale, 50/50, Toss A Puck and other activities during the game to help raise funds for this great cause. The Children's Wish Foundation is the largest and only all-Canadian wish granting charity dedicated to granting the wishes of children between the ages of 3-17 years old who have been diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses. Over the last two years, the NSMBHL has been able to raise over $60,000 for this great cause. Check out The Rangers Facebook page to see more photos of the day.
