NHL Rangers, Islanders, Devils, All on Same Team for Mikey Strong Charity Hockey Game

If there’s one thing that could bring Rangers, Islanders and Devils together, it’s Mikey Nichols’ charity hockey game.

Nichols fractured his C5 vertebrae during a varsity hockey game in 2014, leading the community to rally around him. Friday marked the fifth straight year alumni from local pro teams will skated in the Mikey Strong Charity Hockey Game at the Prudential Center, benefiting Nichols Family Trust as well as the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation.

“My family and I look forward to this game each year because it represents the generosity and warmth of two communities who have been by my side during our toughest times,” Nichols said. “I am in awe of how it has grown over the years and the endless support we’ve received. This game has brought so much awareness to the cause. It’s been overwhelming.”

Throughout its existence, the charity game has brought in over $300,000 to help treat spinal cord injuries. Presented by M&M sponsors included NJ Dvils, Prudential Center, WFAN, and the Boomer & Gio show.
