RON DUGUAY SPEAKS FROM PIER 86

DuguayNew York Rangers great Ron Duguay sat down with Howlings Saturday for a brief interview at Pier 86 as the Blueshirts welcomed kids to come out play hockey and meet some players.

The Legendary Rod Gilbert and fan-favorite Brian Mullen were on hand in the morning to great fans. Ruslan Fedotenko, who is now an unrestricted free-agent from the current Ranger team, was a surprise guest for those in attendance in the morning session. In the afternoon, Duguay and one time New York Ranger and Hartford Wolf Pack Assistant Coach Nick Fotiu greeted fans.

Street hockey teams from across the Big Apple played in a mini-tournament and a multitude of others played pick-up hockey games and took turns in a Rangers hockey bouncer and had a lot of fun taking slap shots on goal in another inflatable.

Between sessions, Duguay shared his thoughts on some of the Whale players that made the Rangers this season, his thoughts on the coaching staff and the tragic loss of Derek Boogaard.

The 2010-11 hockey season marks the 85th Anniversary of the New York Rangers franchise. In honor of this special milestone, the Rangers unveiled a new Heritage jersey tonight at an event for fans at Rockefeller Center presented by The Delta SkyMiles® Credit Card from American Express.

Rangers players including Henrik Lundqvist, Sean Avery, Chris Drury, Marian Gaborik and Brandon Dubinsky were joined by legends Brian Leetch, Adam Graves, Rod Gilbert and Eddie Giacomin to celebrate the jersey unveiling.

The new Rangers jersey is a contemporized throwback that was inspired by the team’s rich history, the city of New York and legendary Rangers players. The jerseys sold at Madison Square Garden will have several exclusive details, including the retired Rangers numbers in the hemline and an official 85th anniversary logo patch on the sleeve. The Rangers will wear the new jersey for the first time on Wednesday, November 17 against the Boston Bruins. In the future, the team will wear the jersey when they play one of the other Original Six teams and during Sunday home games.
