The Islanders I.C.E. Tour, along with defenseman Freddy Meyer, made a stop today in Melville to visit the over 1,000 children that attend the Crestwood Day Camp. From the time the caravan of Islanders vehicles pulled into the 17 acre campground, cheers of “Islanders! Islanders!” could be heard. Along with Freddy, also on hand for the event were Sparky, an Ice Girl, and all of the inflatables from the Family Fan Fest. The children anxiously awaited for Freddy Meyer to pop out of the Islanders RV, and when he did, the air was once again filled with excitement. Every child got a chance to come up and say hello to Freddy, who signed an autograph for every child that stopped by. Later in the visit, Freddy played a little street hockey with some of the campers on their official street hockey rink. The Islanders provided the campers with over 25 new sticks, 2 new nets, and over a dozen street hockey balls, all of which were left behind for the camp to continue to use and have the children continue to play hockey. The children had a blast being able to play street hockey with an actual professional hockey player, an experience they won’t soon forget. “It was great day at Crestwood Day Camp. I signed a lot of autographs for the kids in attendance today and was able to play some street hockey with the kids. It was great to spend another day in the Long Island community. I hope to see all the kids we visited at an Islanders game during the season”, said Meyer.
