Rangers, children take to ice for free hockey clinic

More than 200 children ages 5 to 9 participated in the Rangers’ Try Hockey for Free sessions at the Town of Oyster Bay Ice Skating Center in Bethpage on Sunday, Oct. 22, 2017. Former Rangers star Ron Duguay, all-time Rangers scoring leader Rod Gilbert and instructors with the team’s Junior Rangers program were on hand to help children learn the basics of the game.

Try Hockey for Free was created in 2012 to spur interest in the sport at an early age. On Nov. 3, a Rangers Assist-sponsored game featuring several former Rangers players will be held at the rink and benefit the town hockey program. Town director of operations Andy Rothstein said money raised will help subsidize the program.
