Rangers, Sparta exchange jerseys
PRAGUE -- HC Sparta Prague played the role of gracious hosts Wednesday night. They invited the Rangers to the Hard Rock Cafe to be their special guests at a 2011 NHL Premiere Challenge event.

The two teams, which will play against one another at Tesla Arena Thursday night, exchanged jerseys and pleasantries. Sparta also presented the Rangers with a book on the club's history.

The Rangers were represented by Ryan Callahan, Brad Richards, Dan Girardi, Derek Stepan, Glen Sather and Jim Schoenfeld.

"It certainly was great of Sparta to invite us here to exchange jerseys," Callahan told NHL.com. "It means a lot to us that they have accepted us so well. We are looking forward to playing them tomorrow night. They've been great hosts."

I would definitely love to play with him. He's a skilled player and over the years he definitely has shown that he can score a lot of goals. I think it would work out well.
