The New York Rangers will team up with USA Hockey and community ice rinks across the tri-state area to host the second annual “Try Hockey for Free Day” to celebrate “Come Play Youth Hockey Month” throughout November.

The month-long event will introduce the sport to over 1,500 children ages 4-9 through free skating and hockey lessons at ten participating rinks in the area. Rangers alumni Adam Graves, Nick Fotiu, Brian Mullen, Ron Greschner, and Dave Maloney will be on hand throughout the program to help teach the basics of the sport.

Complimentary rental skates and a limited supply of loaner equipment will be available at each rink, and every child who attends “Try Hockey for Free Day” will receive a free Rangers hockey stick.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for kids to get the chance to play the greatest game on Earth,” said Rangers legend Adam Graves. “These are kids that might not otherwise be able to experience the game of hockey. They are sure to love it and hopefully this ignites a lifelong passion for the sport.”

Participating rinks include Danbury Arena (Danbury, CT), Floyd Hall Arena (Little Falls, NJ), Playland Ice Casino (Rye, NY), World Ice Arena (Flushing, NY), City Ice Pavilion (Long Island City, NY), Brewster Area (Brewster, NY), Ice Time Sports Complex (Newburgh, NY), McCann Ice Arena (Poughkeepsie, NY) Skylands Ice World (Stockholm, NJ) Oyster Bay Skating Center (Bethpage, NY).
