?New York, January 16, 2008 — One day prior to the retirement of his jersey number at Madison Square Garden, New York Rangers Legend Brian Leetch will lace up his skates to benefit a cause dear to him The Ronald McDonald House of New York. Leetch, along with fellow Ranger greats Mark Messier, Mike Richter, Jeff Beukeboom, Rod Gilbert, Adam Graves and Stephane Matteau, will join fans at the 14th Annual Skate with the Greats event at The Rink at Rockefeller Center on Wednesday, Jan. 23 from 6 9p.m. They will help raise money and awareness for The Ronald McDonald House of New York, a facility that offers children with cancer and their families shelter and support while they undergo treatment. While playing for the Rangers in 1995, Leetch, along with Rangers Hall of Famer Rod Gilbert, helped to spearhead the Skate with the Greats event, which has raised more than six million for The Ronald McDonald House of New York. The Ronald McDonald House of New York is supported in part by the Rangers and a partnership with the Garden of Dreams Foundation, a non-profit charity that works closely with the Rangers and all areas of Madison Square Garden to make dreams come true for kids in crisis. This year’s benefit Chairman is Steve Bensinger. Prior to Skate with the Greats, media will have their only opportunity to speak with Leetch and other Rangers on hand about the team’s continued commitment to The Ronald McDonald House of New York. The players also will offer their perspectives on the special night that celebrates Leetchs storied Rangers career, which will be held at Madison Square Garden on Thurs., Jan. 24th.
