Henrik Lundqvist, goalie for the New York Rangers and an Olympic Gold and Silver Medalist, hosted his 2nd annual youth hockey camp last month at the Sky Rink at Chelsea Piers in New York. A Teammate since 2013, Lundqvist and his coaching staff worked diligently with 140 young athletes to hone their skills and boost their confidence.
Teammates proudly provided scholarships that allowed several youths to attend the camp for free. These scholarships were given through Tickets For Kids Charities, which is dedicated to enriching the lives of low-income and at-risk children and their families through inclusion in a variety of activities and events that are a source of both entertainment and inspiration.
As part of a new tradition this summer, Teammates is presenting a Good Teammate Award at each ProCamp where they provide scholarships. Stella Achenbach, age 13, received the award at Lundqvist's camp for exhibiting the qualities of a total Teammate: leadership, toughness, unselfishness, and respect for the game and all of its participants.
