This was their best year ever. They led the league in goals scored with 97.  They also had a player who led the league in scoring as well, Connor Fee with 32 goals and 20 assists for a total of 52 points.


On Saturday March 12th & Sunday March 13th, 2011, the Youth Rangers played in the Districts in West Chester PA. On Saturday they beat the #3 seeded team 6 to 3 to advance to the Championship Game. On Sunday they played the Virtual Wings of Steel but lost 4 - 2 in a very exciting and competitive game.

Two of the Youth Rangers who have been playing since the team started 9 years ago and will be moving on to the Adult League.  We'd like to recognize and thank Bobby Repsha & Connor Fee and their families for all their dedication and hard work.  They truly made a difference by showing how to be a hard working and very competitve Adaptive Athletes and we look forward to seeing them play and compete for many years to come.  

Wheelchair Sports Federation would also like to thank the NY Rangers Hockey Team for their continued sponsorship of the Youth Rangers and NY Rangers Adult Sled Hockey Teams.  They are a shinning example of how a professional franchise can impact the lives of Adaptive Athletes throughout the New York and New Jersey areas.

 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.
