A graduate of the New York University College of Dentistry, Dr. Avi Weisfogel has served as co-owner and business instructor at Dental Sleep Masters for the last year. Outside of his professional responsibilities, Dr. Avi Weisfogel is an avid sports fan who holds season tickets for the New York Rangers NHL team.

Throughout the year, the New York Rangers partner with the Garden of Dreams Foundation to hold fundraising and awareness events that benefit children facing challenges or illness. On October 22, 2015, the team participated in the NHL’s annual Hockey Fights Cancer initiative by holding an awareness event during its game against the Arizona Coyotes.

With the support of the Garden of Dreams Foundation, the Rangers hosted several families from Hassenfield Children’s Center at the NYU Langone Medical Center. Before the game, the children participated in a number of stadium experiences, including riding the Zamboni, throwing t-shirts to the crowd, and eating a catered dinner in the stadium lounge. They then joined nearly 20,000 Rangers fans who had gathered to watch the game.

During the awareness night, the Rangers wore special lavender warm-up jerseys and hockey stick tape, which they later auctioned to raise money for the Garden of Dreams Foundation. After the event, the team offered unique merchandise to benefit the entire Hockey Fights Cancer initiative.

An Overview of the Four New York Rangers Championships

One of the oldest and most storied franchises in all of professional hockey, the New York Rangers played their first season in the National Hockey League (NHL) between 1926 and 1927. Quickly establishing a tradition of winning, the team reached the post-season 15 times over a period of 16 years. This extended run of success included six trips to the Stanley Cup Finals, with victories coming in 1928, the team’s second season, as well as 1933 and 1940.

After initial success, the Rangers struggled for several seasons starting in 1942. Over the course of 13 years, the team made only two post-season appearances, though the franchise did secure its seventh Stanley Cup appearance in 1950, losing to Detroit in a memorable double overtime game seven. The Rangers fared somewhat better between 1955 and 1966, reaching the semifinals four times. The Rangers truly returned to the post-season picture in 1967, however. The team enjoyed nine consecutive playoff appearances, with an eighth Stanley Cup Final coming in 1972. After a two-year hiatus, the Rangers established themselves as a playoff threat 18 times over the following 20 seasons.

In 1994, the Rangers made their 10th appearance in the Stanley Cup Finals, finally adding a fourth trophy at the expense of the Vancouver Canucks in front of a packed Madison Square Garden Crowd. It had been 54 years since their last Stanley Cup victory. The Rangers have yet to capture a fifth Stanley Cup, though the team has made the post-season nine times in the past decade, reaching the NHL finals as recently as 2014.
