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.”

Jericho native Amanda Epstein prepared her entire life for the opportunity to play in this particular soccer game, so when she stepped onto the field at Boston College with her Marist College teammates for the first round of the NCAA Tournament, the significance of the moment did not escape her.
“When I was little, I read books about players like Mia Hamm playing in the NCAA Tournament. To have the opportunity to experience that as a freshman is a dream come true. I never thought it would happen to me, but it became a reality this year,” said Epstein.

Playing together since the K-2 Sylax (Syosset Youth Lacrosse) clinic, they have formed a special bond that has proven successful, posting a 7-1-1 overall record this past spring season.
