Former Kitchener Rangers' players are doing great things in the American Hockey League.

On Thursday, Riley Damiani of the Texas Stars, was awarded the Dudley (Red) Garrett Memorial Award as the league's outstanding rookie for the 2020-21 season.

The 21-year-old ended the season with 11 goals and 25 assists in 36 games. He also finished third in the AHL scoring race.

Damiani was a fifth round pick of the Dallas Stars in the 2018 NHL Draft.

On Wednesday, ex Rangers' blueliner Ryan Murphy was named the AHL's most outstanding defenceman.
