The New York Rangers held a moment of silence to honor slain New York Police Department officer Brian Mulkeen, who was killed in the line of duty on Sunday.

Mulkeen, 33, worked in the Bronx Anti-Crime Unit out of the 47th Precinct. He was a veteran of over six years.

Before the season opener at Madison Square Garden, Rangers fans observed the moment as a picture of Mulkeen in his NYPD uniform was put up on the scoreboard above center ice.

The Rangers have a strong relationship with the New York Police Department. At the end of each season the team gives out the Steven McDonald Extra Effort Award, named in honor of the late NYPD detective and lifelong Rangers fan.
