Fronts: Parks and re-creation; Mavric jets off to Rangers

The Kingston Frontenacs at least managed to get pared down to two goaltenders: Mavric Parks was the one to go, returning to his original team, the Kitchener Rangers, for a fifth-round draft choice.

Parks was one hell of an instinctive goalie. Maybe too good. He was prone to letting the occasionally softy, since the Frontenacs' defence often wrote checks no netminder could cash. He'll probably do OK in Kitchener, which won't necessarily mean Kingston was wrong. That will depend on how will John Cullen works out as a backup, how often he can spell off Tyler Beskorowany.

At some point, there will be an omnibus post about the Frontenacs' outlook. The regular-season opener at Niagara is coming up fast!
