Ryan McDonagh, Brian Leetch, Rod Gilbert, Dave Maloney, Vic Hadfield and assistant coach Mike Sullivan were just a few of the notable attendees for the Rangers/Chase golf outing at the Trump National Golf Club in Briarcliff Manor yesterday. Blueshirts United posted a gallery of shots on their website.
It takes a lot for me to write about golf, it really does. Birdies, eagles, bogeys… it’s all foreign language to me. In one ear and out the other. Still, it’s nice to see the likes of Ryan McDonagh relaxing ahead of the new season – hopefully he found time to pick Brian Leetch’s brain a little as he heads into his second year on the Rangers’ blueline. Couldn’t hurt, could it.
