Light refreshments were served, and subscribers were given a chance to meet some of their favorite Rangers players from the past, which is always a treat for both the subscribers themselves and the Rangers Alumni. Subscribers get an opportunity to speak with these former players and question them about their playing days.
Alumni welcome the chance to reminisce and reconnect with their fans. Along with a question and answer segment and some Rangers trivia, the Alumni meet-and-greets give the Reunion Nights a special feel.
On Feb. 5, Pierre Larouche
, Rod Gilbert

trade moments after it was made.

Subscribers filled the restaurant as they listened intently as the Rangers Alumni talked about about their fondest memories from their playing days. At the end of the night, a few lucky subscribers were treated to a seat upgrade for the game.
