2007-08: Unice withdrew his college commitment to join Kitchener of the OHL beginning the 2007-08 season.  Fresh off his campaign with the U.S. National Team Development Program, Unice withdrew his college commitment to Bowling Green University for the 2007-08 season and, instead, signed with the Kitchener Rangers of the OHL. Unice put up impressive numbers with Kitchener, as he won over 70 percent of his regular season games and posted a 2.45 GAA.  Unice carried this momentum over to the playoffs, where he helped the team win the J. Ross Robertson Cup (OHL Championship) and a berth in the Memorial Cup finals.

2008-09: Traded to the Windsor Spitfires halfway through the season, but saw only light duty for either team.
