Boller Reflects on Youth Hockey Camp, Proud of Its Growth Over Years

by Matt Calamia @MattCalamia / NYRangers.com

Pat Boller is still feeling the impact of some advice former Rangers defenseman Ron Greschner gave him when Boller attended Greschner's hockey camp as a kid.

"He told me to take wrist shots instead of slap shots," Boller, now the Assistant General Manager for the Hartford Wolf Pack, said. "That's still burned in my mind. I still remember that."

Years after that experience, Boller - at the time a coaching assistant with the Rangers - helped create the Rangers' Youth Hockey Camp, and in the 14 years since, countless others have had a similar experience to Boller from players they look up to today.

New Jersey Youth Hockey Player Giving Back to Community

13-Year-Old Organizes Events to Raise Money for Those in Need

by Matt Calamia @MattCalamia / NYRangers.com

Benjamin Handwerker has been involved with charitable causes for years.

Following Hurricane Sandy in 2012, he organized Saves for Sandy to benefit those affected by the super storm. That was followed by Stops for Cops, which raised $2,500 that was donated to Westfield Local PBA 90 following the deaths of New York Police Department officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, who were killed in Brooklyn in late 2014.

It should be noted that Handwerker did all that before leaving elementary school.

The New York Rangers Support NHL Green

by Junior Rangers @JuniorRangers / NYRangers.com/Junior

The ability to skate and play the game outdoors is a critical component of the NHL's history and culture. Major environmental challenges, such as climate change and freshwater scarcity, affect future opportunities for hockey players of all ages to take the game outside. This is why the New York Rangers and NHL are committed to improving hockey's environmental impact - and to helping catalyze a larger movement toward a healthier planet.

Over the course of the year we partake in a variety of programs to support environmental changes and challenges.

Being a Ranger with Colton Orr

by Junior Rangers @JuniorRangers / NYRangers.com

What was it like the first time you stepped on The Garden ice as a Ranger?

I was picked up by the Rangers on November 29, 2005 but I didn't play my first game at MSG until March 12, 2006. I had only played road games until then. I remember the anticipation leading up to playing at MSG. I would watch from the press box and I remember how loud the fans were especially in the Blue Seats. I would just keep saying I can't wait to play in front of this crowd. You always hear how great it is but can't really appreciate it until you experience it. So the day I was getting ready to play my first game at The Garden, I drove into the city so excited. I tried to take a pre-game nap, but the excitement and nerves kept me awake. Later that evening I would take to the ice for my first shift and do what I did best, make a big hit on the forecheck. The crowd went crazy and I had chills running through me. I will never forget the feeling of being so fortunate to play for the Rangers at The Garden for such incredible fans.

Brian Mullen on learning to play hockey

by Junior Rangers @JuniorRangers / NYRangers.com

New York is obviously a huge hockey market but not known as a hockey hot bed per se. How did you get into playing hockey in a city dominated by street basketball?

"It was pretty easy for me. My father worked at Madison Square Garden, but he was also a roller hockey player. He's the one who got my whole family into the sport of hockey. I had three older brothers who played roller hockey. My brother Kenny was the one that actually jumped to ice hockey and led the rest of us to ice hockey."
