Former Boston Bruins star known for his smooth play and for breaking the sport’s color barrier

The Town of Oyster Bay will host National Hockey League (NHL) pioneer Willie O’Ree on the evening of Wednesday, Jan. 18, at the state-of-the-art Town of Oyster Bay Ice Skating Center in Bethpage, said Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto. O’Ree was known for his speed and checking abilities throughout his career and was a threat every time he touched the ice. His accomplishments on the ice, however, tell only part of his proud history. He also made an immeasurable social impact as the first black player to compete in a National Hockey League game.

“Willie O’Ree is often referred to as the “Jackie Robinson of ice hockey” due to the similarities of both as trailblazers in their respective sports.” Supervisor Venditto said. “The Town of Oyster Bay is fortunate to have Mr. O’Ree as a special guest at the rink. His historical significance in the sports world can’t be understated. He is an icon to the game of hockey.”
