The goaltending situation in Kitchener has cleared up ahead of the season.
Overage goaltender Luke Richardson had decided to pursue an academic opportunity with Queen's University, and suit up with the Queen's Gaels (OUA) men's hockey program.
Richardson has spent the last four seasons with the Rangers, after he was drafted in the fourth round of the 2015 OHL Priority Selection.
He piled up a regular season record of 62-40-5-1 with a 3.45 goals against average and .893 save percentage.
This leaves two more goaltenders on the team, in projected starter Jacob Ingham and backup Lucas Pfeil.
The Rangers have a home-and-home with the Barrie Colts to finish off the preseason, starting in Kitchener on Friday, Sept. 13 at 7:30 p.m.
