The town sponsoring a "Try Hockey for Free" program on Nov. 17 at the Ice Skating Center in Bethpage Community Park.

The program is being co-sponsored by the NHL's New York Rangers "Future Rangers" program," and there will be two sessions. One goes from 9 a.m.-9:40 a.m., while the second runs from 9:50 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

Kids will be provided with equipment in the free clinic and also have a chance to meet former Rangers great Brian Mullen.

“The session will also give parents the opportunity to assess if the sport of ice hockey is a good fit for their youngster, without making an initial financial commitment,” Town Supervisor John Venditto said.

Time will also be time set aside for autographs and photo sessions.
