We are so proud to have been one of the sponsors for 2017 the Pee Wee NY Rangers, part of the fabled NY Rangers organization, as they blazed a trail to Quebec for the International Pee Wee Tournament. The team comprised players from the North East who were hand selected to join the team and represent the New York Rangers Organization. Coached by New York Rangers legend, and US Hockey Hall of Fame goalie, Mike Richter, the boys made it all the way to the final. Our Deputy Partner-In-Charge, Ronald Friedman’s son, Ryan was a player on the team.
In the run up to the Quebec tournament the team played against some of the best Pee Wee teams in North America. During their time in Quebec the boys faced off with teams from all around the world. The tournament was truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the boys and their families during which they created memories they will never forget.
The boys also had the amazing experience of playing the Pee Wee Islanders at Madison Square Garden, which was followed by the team being honored by the New York Rangers on the ice before the game in front of a packed MSG. The experience was like none other with thousands of fans recognizing the hard work the young team has put in, culminating on the ice that they dreamed on skating on.
We were on hand to photograph the boys during practice sessions and then at MSG, we put together the Commemorative Journal, creating an online version with galleries. Check out the boys and their amazing journey and see for yourself what an amazing experience this was for the boys. Go Rangers!
