The kids were treated to numerous interactive games, including air hockey and bubble hockey, as well as various carnival-style activities. The highlight for many of the kids, in what has become the event’s signature activity over the last few years, was having the opportunity to play floor hockey with some of the Rangers players.
Every child attending also had a chance to receive each player's autograph and speak to the players one-on-one.
