A happy little man

I wanted to give a shout out to the Rangers’ Brandon Dubinsky.

I brought my three-year-old son to his first hockey game when the Rangers were visiting Tampa Bay. I've been a diehard Rangers fan since the early 1970s and I'm passing on the tradition.

On this night Dubinsky made my son a happy little man. As we watched the pre-game warmups Dubinsky came by and tossed a puck over the boards. I caught it and handed it to a child in front of me as directed by Dubinsky. He then grabbed another puck and tossed it to my son and I as we stood there in our Rangers jerseys.

My son Blaise was so excited he had to go show mom.

The game was great: a few fights, a late tying goal and a shootout win for the Rangers. Thank you Brandon Dubinsky for making my son a happy little man and for thinking about the younger fans out there.

Thank you! Let’s go Rangers!

Could the New York Rangers Part Ways With Artemi Panarin?

Panarin struggled in the post-season, and some reports have suggested it wouldn't be crazy if he was shipped out of the Big Apple. Still, as Lyle Richardson says, it would be a challenge to move the forward.
