NEW YORK RANGERS INVITE FANS TO CELEBRATE HOCKEY WEEKEND IN NEW YORK
Third Annual “Hockey Weekend in New York”– February 6-9
New York, February 7, 2014 – In support of USA Hockey’s annual “Hockey Weekend Across America,” the New York Rangers are celebrating the third annual “Hockey Weekend in New York.”
“Hockey Weekend in New York” is part of a larger youth hockey platform – “Go Skate! Playing is the Goal” – that focuses on improving the youth hockey experience in the tri-state by increasing opportunities and accessibility to the sport through hockey camps, clinics and free skating events. Last season alone, the organization held over 250 community events in the tri-state, giving more than 10,000 youth the opportunity to experience hockey.
“The Rangers organization is thrilled to once again host ‘Hockey Weekend in New York.’ We are committed to growing the sport of hockey throughout the Tri-State area and building the next generation of fans and players,” said Michael Guth, executive vice president of marketing, MSG Sports. “The variety of free events are a great way for young kids to stay active, practice teamwork and learn more about the great sport of hockey.”
