Yesterday before the prospects camp scrimmage, they brought out Liam Traynor of Blauvelt, a wheelchair-bound kid who pretty much joined the Rangers family via the Garden of Dreams Foundation .
And Liam, a sled-hockey player, dropped the puck for the ceremonial start of the scrimmage, as all the players and coaches gave him an ovation.
“Oh, that is … that’s a nice family,” Rangers coach John Tortorella said later. “It’s a family I’ve grown close to. And then, how the boys reacted … the thing with that stuff, that’s a minute or two out of the players’ time. That’s a lifetime experience for a kid like that and his family. So it was terrific. It was a lot of fun. A lot of fun.”
Liam stayed and watched the scrimmages with Tortorella and Adam Graves and others.
