The Power Players Street Hockey Program provides weekly scheduled clinics, November to January, which aim to educate and inspire 75 new children and 75 returning children from the prior year- known as Power Players Selects. In addition, the kids will receive a variety of Rangers items as part of the program and will have an opportunity to play in a culminating round robin tournament in January.

Ranger’s defensemen Anton Stralman and Legend Adam Graves will be onsite today for the launch of the program assisting participants by providing guidance and tips to the new hockey players.

The Garden of Dreams Foundation is a 501(c) (3) non-profit charity that works with The Madison Square Garden Company (MSG) to positively impact the lives of children facing obstacles, 225,000 families since its inception in 2006. Through ongoing programs that use the magic of MSG – including the Knicks, the Rangers, the Liberty, MSG Entertainment, MSG Networks and Fuse – the Foundation develops strong, long-term relationships that truly change lives.
