Empire City Casino, in partnership with the New York Rangers, announced this week that New York Rangers Legend Adam Graves will make his first visit to Empire City Casino to host the next Rangers Viewing Party this Saturday night, January 14, where fans can join Adam to cheer the Rangers on as they hit the road to take on the Montreal Canadians.
Graves, whose No. 9 Jersey was retired in 2009, played a pivotal role in bringing home the Rangers’ first Stanley Cup in over 54 years in 1994. Rangers Legend Stéphane Matteau hosted the first viewing party back on Saturday, December 17.
Fans from all over the tri-state area are encouraged to hop on the Rangers Bandwagon, which includes a special Rangers bus departing from Madison Square Garden (outside Café 31, 220 W. 31st St. between Seventh and Eighth Ave) at 5:45 p.m. Saturday and arriving just in time to spend some quality hockey time with Graves. During the short bus ride, fans can win autographed Rangers gear, hockey equipment and more. Email EmpireCityCasinoVi
ewingParty@msg.com to reserve a spot on the bus.
The viewing parties inside Dan Rooney’s Sports Pub are FREE for all to attend and begin one hour before the puck drops. Joining Rangers fans for the festivities, including the bus ride from the Garden, will be the Rangers Blue Crew who will put fans to the test with Rangers trivia and offer an array of Rangers swag as giveaways during each intermission. Fans can also enjoy a variety of food and beverage specials, including $1 wings, $2.50 bud lights and more.
“Hockey fans will find no shortage of fun at one of the premier entertainment destinations in the Northeast,” said Taryn Duffy, director of public affairs at Empire City Casino. “Join us on the Rangers bus or at the Casino to meet Graves, make some new friends along the way and wish the Rangers luck, and who knows… maybe that luck will stick with you on the casino floor.”
The January 14 event is the second of five viewing parties planned during the NHL season, all of which will be hosted by former New York Rangers Greats during Rangers away games. Stay tuned to www.empirecitycasino.com/
