While speaking at Brad Richards' wine tasting event last October, Ryan McDonagh stated to the Daily News that he is focused on creating a charity of his own and he wants to do something similar to Richards where he can bring kids to games played at Madison Square Garden.

Richards had the "Richie's Rascals" program in Tampa Bay and is bringing it to NY.

McDonagh was excited to have a teammate like Richards involved in a program like this and knows how much of an impact hockey can have on children.

Now 39-years-old, former Islander Alexei Yashin has not played in the NHL since the 2006-2007 season when he played on Long Island. Despite the absence he has practiced at the Isles practice facility in the past and still can be seen at the Coliseum for games. This Saturday, Yashin will hit the ice for a good cause Saturday afternoon. He is partaking in the Global Hockey Legends for Hurricane Sandy Relief Game at the Prudential Center, which starts at 1 P.M.

Ironically, his last year in the league coincides with the last time the Isles made it to the post season. They currently sit tied for sixth in the Eastern Conference and could make their first playoff appearance since 2007.

?They?re in a very good position, but they still have to win some hockey games to clinch the playoffs and I wish them good luck,? Yashin said of the current team during a phone interview Friday. ?I?m very happy for Charles too, because he?s tried to make the playoffs for the last couple of years and now they really have an opportunity.?

Antoinette Figueroa sends in this story of when the Rangers were in Staten Island a few weeks ago.


In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy all I can do is sit in my house on Staten Island and think about the devastation that so many face and how I can give back to my community. I started by donating to the local charities and going to the hardest hit areas to deliver bottles and bottles of water to the people who have nothing. I decided to start raising money on my own so that I could feed those people and after tweeting to some of the Rangers players and writers I started to receive anonymous donations which in my heart I believe came from them.

As soon as the charity game in Atlantic City ended last week, rumors and hope of another one started to pop up.

Todd Fedoruk, who organized the game in AC, said that he liked the idea of trying to put on a game in Central Park.

Following the game in AC, Brad Richards told?Ranger Rants ?It?s fun for us to do this stuff. It?s a great feeling to get out there?(But) you need a lot of people behind the scenes. We?re always looking for ideas and opportunities but you need people behind the scenes. You?ve got to find these people to volunteer. Hopefully, we can do more. I?d love to.?

In the time shortly after Hurricane Sandy, Brad Richards organized a hockey clinic on Staten Island that raised $14,000 and saw his teammates Ryan Callahan, Anton Stralman, Marc Staal, Dan Girardi, Jeff Halpern, Taylor Pyatt, Steve Eminger, Carl Hagelin and Brian Boyle help out.

When asked about why the players decided to get involved with the recovery for Hurricane Sandy, Brad Richards said, Captain Ryan Callahan told?SILive, "For us to come here and put some smiles on some people?s faces and raise some money, we?re happy to do it and glad we can.?

Richards added that this was a very easy thing to get involved, ?We?re a tight-knit group. We live in a community and play in front of great fans and live in a great city, so it?s not too hard to make that decision to come out and do something like this.?

Earlier this week it was revealed that Henrik Lundqvist's mask, which was auctioned off for Hurricane Sandy Relief, was purchased for $66,000.

At USA Today, Kevin Allen writes that the price paid for Lundqvist's mask was the highest for any goalie mask.

Lundqvist said of the auction, "To be able to donate this amount to people that really need it right now is great. I am incredibly thankful to everyone who bid on the helmet, especially the winner. This money will hopefully be able to make a real difference for some families who were directly affected by this storm."

I drove down from North Jersey with my family and arrived in Atlantic City around 5:15.? We waited until around 5:30 and walked onto the boardwalk standing in the cold for a half hour with many other anxious fans until the doors finally opened.? I was amazed at how many different teams? jerseys I saw, most of which were Flyers.? Walking in I could feel a buzz in the crowd, some people started ?Let?s Go Rangers? chants and much louder chants for the Flyers.? After getting our tickets scanned, I went and bought a t-shirt for the event, to be sure I could get one before they were sold out.? Everyone throughout the arena was friendly and excited, looking forward to finally seeing some hockey.

The arena was very neat, being that there was a stage at one end, and every seat felt close to the ice.? For warm-ups I walked down to the glass and along with many other Rangers fans (I was on the team NY side) were pounding on the glass cheering on our favorite players (many of which acknowledged us as opposed to a regular game).? After warm-ups were over, we headed back to the seats and waited for the game to begin.

They began by announcing the starting line ups, and it was clear that team Hartnell was preferred among the fans.? The loudest boos were for James Neal and Coach Vinny from the Jersey Shore.? After the National Anthem Hartnell and Richards addressed the crowd from center ice, thanking us for our support and saying how impressed they were with the response they got from sponsors, players, and fans in such a short time period.
