Luke Buck won the best in-arena prize ever on Wednesday, November 20th.
The 10-year-old fan, who is a member of the10U A Rinx Metro South team, was surprised by his dad, Staff Sgt. Ian Buck, who just got done serving a year-long tour in Afghanistan, during the second period of the New York Rangers game against the Washington Capitals.
Luke was chosen to compete in a movie-naming contest against Rangers defenseman Adam Fox. Luke named 13 sports movies in 15 seconds, defeating Fox's six and earning him a Rangers jersey.
That's when Ian, a huge Rangers fan who once flew a team flag next to his American flag on a helicopter during a mission, came racing down the stairs to surprise his son with the jersey. Luke saw his dad and ran up the stairs, then gave him a huge hug as he burst into tears.
The crowd roared, and the players on the ice tapped their sticks...SEE THE VIDEO
The Rangers didn't let the Bucks down either, claiming a 4-1 win against Washington.
Kids ages 5 to 8 who want to learn to play ice hockey can sign up for the New York Islanders’ Learn to Play initiative that begins in August at ice rinks across Long Island.
For $200, the eight-week program includes ice time and head-to-toe equipment for the child to keep. The program was developed jointly by the National Hockey League and the National Hockey League Players’ Association to offer more families a chance to experience youth hockey.
Training includes passing and stick handling and emphasizes respect and teamwork. Participants must be first-time players. If the child doesn’t know how to skate, it is recommended they take a “Learn to Skate” class at a participating local rink before their sessions begin.
Registration is online only, at learntoplay.nhl.com/islanders. If preferred locations are sold out, complete a waiting list form and families may be contacted if an opening occurs. Sessions begin in August at The Rinx in Hauppauge (currently sold out), Cantiague Park Ice Rink in Hicksville, Northwell Health Ice Center at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow and Ice Works in Syosset.
Other sessions begin in September and October. For more information, email
