I absolutely hate the New York Rangers, but I cannot deny the fact that they once held practice at the Long Beach Ice Arena. The official Rags website has an article on the history of their training facilities, so I figured I’d post the link since it is our history too!
From the article:
By 1975 the Rangers were ready to come home and use their practice facility in Long Beach, N.Y., as training-camp site. Camp was held in Long Beach for the next three seasons until new owner Sonny Werblin decided to bring the team even closer to Manhattan by having them train in Westchester County.
I just wanted to point out that Long Beach is actually closer to MSG than Rye, NY, but whatever. Read the full article @ rangers.nhl.com: NYR training camp has history all its own
