BARRINGTON -The NHL Legends from the New York Rangers will be playing against a large local team at the Barrington Arena on March 20.  

Some more local players had been needed to round the local team and a group of former BMHS players were invited to take, who eagerly accepted the honor.

The game offers a chance to see and play against NHL Legends which include Ron Duguay, Bernie Nicholls, Rick Middleton, Stephan Matteau, Darius Kasparaitis and Ron Grescher, among others

Duguay is also known for his role as a contestant in the CBC program Battle of the Blades.

More than 20 local players have signed on to be a part of the local legends team and take on the former Rangers.

Some Shelburne County Minor Hockey novice players will also become stars for the night as they have a little fun on the ice with the NHL stars

In 2013, the Barrington Arena hosted a similar event featuring former Boston Bruins alumni.

This year, dressing room passes will again be offered during intermission for autographs, photos and meeting the stars.

VIP Reception Passes will also be offered for a post game reception at the Barrington Curling Club following the game. There people will get to mingle with the stars of the New York Rangers alumni team, get autographs and photos. Food and beverages will be served.

The following day, a hockey clinic with the stars will be held at the Barrington Arena for children ages 9-13. (Must be registered with a minor hockey association or high school hockey team to register)

Suzy Atwood is coordinating the event. People can call Atwood at 902-637-8166 or go to the group’s Facebook page for more information.

Tickets to the game at the arena will be available at the door Friday night.
