Wolf Pack players go one-on-one with CT Chasers

Less than one week after finishing training camp with the AHL's Hartford Wolf Pack, team members were on the ice teaching skills to members of the CT Chasers, a hockey team made up of young men with developmental challenges.

Wolf Pack goaltender, Steve Valiquette (right), and last year's league-leading goal scorer, Jeff Hamilton, joined the Chasers at the Old Avon Farms School arena Wednesday afternoon to work one-on-one with the players. The CT Chasers play in the "Heart League/Special Hockey International" and participate in a number of games and tournaments throughout the season.

The Wolf Pack attends practices each month to lend support and help teach hockey skills to these very special athletes. This endeavor is part of the commitment of the Hartford Wolf Pack Foundation, which strives to help charitable and non-profit endeavors that offer support to inner-city youth, amateur sport, and promote the health, education and well being of Connecticut's children.

The AHL's Hartford Wolf Pack hockey club is part of Madison Square Garden LP. Cablevision Systems Corporation owns a controlling interest in MSG LP, which also includes the New York Rangers (NHL), New York Knicks (NBA), the New York Liberty (WNBA), the MSG Network, Fox Sports Net and the Madison Square Garden arena
