 New York Rangers Sled Hockey Squad Showcase Their Skills At A Packed Madison Square Garden

 

NEW YORK, NY—On February 3rd, 2011, in front of thousands of rabid Rangers’ fans at Madison Square Garden, the New York Rangers Sled Hockey team took the ice and showcased the game they so love.  During the 2nd intermission in the game between the Rangers and the New Jersey Devils, several members of the sled hockey incarnation of the home team thrilled the Garden faithful with a dazzling display of sled hockey prowess.  The crowd, usually more interested in hitting the restrooms or food stands, actually stayed put during the intermission, cheering the players on throughout the demonstration.  The team did a great job of playing to and amping up the enamored crowd, and team members Connor Fee, Bobby Repsha, Kevin Lynch, and Jack Wallace gratefully acknowledged their cheers by saluting the fans as they left the ice.

            Special thanks to Madison Square Garden, the New York Rangers, Rick Nadeau, and Victor Calise for helping make this memorable evening possible, and to the players themselves, who gave all in attendance a terrific show.
