Friday, 17 February 2012 00:00

398 hardy soles braved the inclement weather on Saturday morning, Feb. 11 at the Old Bethpage Restoration Village, and when the snowflakes had settled 22-year-old Bradley Raxenberg of Woodbury and 31-year-old Shari Klarfeld on Plainview emerged as the top male and female finishers overall. The OBVR 5-Kilometer Run was the kickoff event of the new RunNassau Series of races leading up to the Long island Marathon in May.

Raxenberg crossed the finish line of this not-so-easy course in 17 minutes, 30 seconds, nearly a full minute in front of runner-up John Theissen of Seaford. Klarfeld scored first among the women (beating all but the first three men in the process!) in 19:17.

Islanders Host Successful Lighthouse International Tournament

Friday, 03 February 2012 00:00

Fifth-annual event showcases talent from across the world

For the fifth consecutive year, pee-wee hockey players from across the globe descended upon Long Island to compete in the New York Islanders annual Lighthouse International Youth Hockey Tournament. Charles B. Wang’s Project Hope charity and the Islanders Children’s Foundation funded this unique international tournament with the goal of creating opportunities for cultural exchange through youth hockey events.

After three days full of games, Finland’s Ilves Islanders skated away with the gold and silver medals in a thrilling back and forth final. They showcased a group of talented young players with the ability and hockey sense of much older teams.

Japan, which traveled the furthest to attend the tournament, showed their European friends and North American hosts that the under-represented hockey nation is growing a crop of young, smooth skaters.

 

New York Islanders’ Two Matts Are Very Welcoming

Moulson, Martin reaching out to military families

 “Home ice advantage” is a common expression used throughout the National Hockey League, and one usually utilized for good reason: as of Jan. 16, only two out of the 30 NHL teams had a winning percentage below .500 on home ice.

For New York Islanders’ forwards Matt Martin and Matt Moulson, playing at the Nassau Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum represents more than just a statistical advantage as the two athletes host a different member of the armed forces and his or her family for each of the team’s 41 home games. Win or lose, regulation, overtime or shootout, Martin and Moulson meet with their guests after games near the Islanders’ locker room – where, uncharacteristically, hockey isn’t the only topic of conversation.

TOB Will Host the NHL Hockey Legend Willie O’Ree

Friday, 13 January 2012 00:00

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.”
