The Rangers introduced goaltender Ed Davey this afternoon and the 19 year old, just picked up from the Central Division’s Wellington Dukes, put in an outstanding performance in a 2-1 shootout loss to the east division’s 3rd place Peterborough Stars. Davey had a solid 10 win 3 loss record with the Dukes. He gave up the opening goal at 2:52 of the first to the Stars veteran sniper Pier-Olivier Cotnoir who has 150 points in just over 3 seasons with Peterborough. He did not allow another goal until he was beaten on the 2nd shot of the shootout making some unbelievable saves to keep the Rangers in the game up tp that point. Rangers’ Zach Smith tied the game on a power play from Joe Serpe and Connor Tresham at 14:47 of the 2nd. North York was unable to score in the shoot out and when Cotnoir scored on the 3rd shot it ended the game 2-1 for the Stars. Referees Sean McQuigge and Chris Carnegie called 14 pemalties with each team scoring on the power play. Rangers are off to York University on Thursday to play Villanova and travel to Burlington on Friday for their only game of the season with the Cougars. North York is home to Seguin on Sunday at 3pm.
