Duguay introduces kids to hockey

by Staff Writer / New York Rangers

On March 29, the Rangers and Garden of Dreams partnered with the Children's Aid Society to conduct a special floor hockey clinic for 40 children led by Ron Duguay.

Former Rangers star and current MSG broadcaster Ron Duguay prepares to officiate a faceoff at the clinic he conducted at the Children's Aid Society's Dunleavy Milbank Center in Central Harlem.
The clinic, which was held at the Children’s Aid Society’s Dunleavy Milbank Center in Central Harlem, was part of an on-going program that introduces children of Garden of Dreams’ partner organizations to the game of hockey.

After going over the event’s agenda with the kids and answering various questions about his hockey career, Duguay split the youngsters into two groups. While one half participated in introductory hockey drills and an organized scrimmage, the other half enjoyed taking turns at the Rangers inflatable slap shot booth.

Once both groups had an opportunity to participate in each of the activities, the children were treated to a pizza party and received special goodies courtesy of the Rangers and Garden of Dreams including autographed photo cards, gift bags and Rangers jerseys which were a big hit for all of the kids.
