|Kyle Meier, top, and Conor Ryan were both special guests of the Rangers and Garden of Dreams Foundation at the Feb. 11 game vs. Washington.|
Kyle Meier, 5, and Connor Ryan, 14, have had to overcome a number of health related issues over the years. After hearing about each individual’s story, the Rangers and Garden of Dreams stepped in to create a memorable night for both of these true blue Rangers fans.
Kyle and Connor, along with their families, were invited to Madison Square Garden to watch the Rangers take on the Washington Capitals. Prior to the game, the youngsters were treated to customized Rangers jerseys and were lucky enough to check out warm-ups from the Rangers bench.
During the game, the boys each received a special welcome on GardenVision and throughout the night were given various Rangers goodies.
Once the final buzzer sounded, Kyle and Connor were treated to one last surprise. As the crowd filtered out of the arena, the kids and their families were escorted to ice level for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to step foot on The Garden ice and take a photo at center ice.
