New York Rangers travel to work like their fans—on the NYC subway

Brady Skjei, Jimmy Vesey and Kevin Hayes threw their gear on and took the subway to Saturday’s outdoor practice for the Rangers.

The Rangers had an outdoor open practice at Lasker Rink Saturday in New York City. As most of the Rangers arrived at the rink in a van, Brady Skjei, Jimmy Vesey and Kevin Hayes decided to commute to practice New Yorker style.

That meant a train ride via the 3 express train to Central Park. Where would they put a Metrocard in their uniforms?

“It was pretty funny,” Hayes told Greg Joyce of the New York Post. “The rink was small, but it’s awesome to come out here and see the fans and see all the support we get. We have a pretty set routine, so to do something different is actually exciting.”

Commuters on Saturday morning had an unusual sight, as the boys began their trip.

Boys will be boys as the guys goofed off waiting for the train. Skjei and Vesey teaming up against Hayes as they wait on the subway platform.

Hayes seems to get his way as the Rangers traveled to practice. Well, it wasn’t a normal trip to practice on the subway. The cameraman seems to take some room on the train.

Fans on the way to the outdoor practice themselves must have been thrilled to see Kevin Hayes sitting next to them as they all head to the rink for the open outdoor practice.

Just a walk in the park for the trio as they head to the rink for practice.

The Rangers will play in the 10th Annual Winter Classic on Jan. 1, 2018, at Citi Field.
