harlemyouthb862d988-d88b-42b4-9b5e-a301d0ea1e0dSunday is a special day on the ice for some youth hockey players in Harlem.

Boston University’s men’s ice hockey team is in town for a game against Cornell University at Madison Square Garden.

Before they hit the ice, they gave back to some aspiring young athletes. They hosted a special clinic for the “Ice Hockey in Harlem” program at Lasker Rink in Central Park.

Mike Eruzione, who was the captain of the “Miracle on Ice” USA hockey team and a former Boston University player, joined the effort.

“Anybody can play the game of ice hockey. You don’t have to be from the rich suburbs, you can be from anywhere. I grew up with no money at all and I fell into hockey and I loved it,” said Eruzione.

“It’s really fun because we get to play with them and I always wanted to play with some other teams,” said one young player.

“It’s a really fun experience. The drills were really fun too. And I’ll definitely remember this,” said another.

Coaches and players also spoke to the kids about working hard in school and making education their top priority.
