The New York Rangers welcomed 100 local teachers and administrators to Madison Square Garden to launch the 2015-16 Future Goals season.
The Future Goals Program, a league wide initiative is designed to inspire students to learn about key science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) topics and the importance of a healthy lifestyle. The day started off with a welcome and program overview, followed by a presentation about the Rangers’ Youth Hockey programs.
Rangers alum Brian Mullen (NYR 1987-91) joined the group for morning skate, the highlight of the day.
