VOLUNTEERS, RUNNERS, & WALKERS NEEDED - Susan G. Komen Connecticut Fairfield County Race for the Cure
The 2nd annual Komen CT Race for a Cure will be held on Saturday, May 10th at Veteran's Park in Norwalk. This amazing event is much more than just a 5K fundraiser - it is a celebration of all those impacted by breast cancer and the people who love them. Every penny raised stays in Connecticut to provide services and research for breast cancer patients.
SYHA is getting a group together to volunteer during this event. Many volunteers are needed to help make this day a success by helping direct traffic, handing out water, assisting with runner registration, and many other jobs.
Kids of any age are welcome to volunteer as long as they are accompanied by an adult.
A large amount of free tickets are available to both games this weekend!
To request tickets contact the Sound Tigers Youth Hockey Coordinator Alayne Murphy by calling 203-345-4819 or emailing
Just let her know you are with the Stamford Sharks and the number of tickets you need.
SYHA is in its 40th year of existence. The members and VOLUNTEERS have made this organization the success it is today. Contribute to the future of SYHA and your child's hockey experience by volunteering for one of the board positions listed below.

Wednesday afternoon the Rangers announced that the club has agreed to terms with undrafted free agent forward Ryan Haggerty, a Stamford, CT-native who has played the past three years in college at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) of the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Association (ECAC). Haggerty will join the Rangers following their road trip this week. Since Haggerty signed an NHL deal starting with this season, he can not be assigned to the AHL because it is post-deadline.
The 6-foot, 180-pound Haggerty led R.P.I. in scoring this past season with a career-best 43 points in 35 games. Haggerty also led the team with 28 goals, 10 power play goals, and six game-winners--all career-high numbers for the 21-year-old. In three seasons at R.P.I. Haggerty appeared in 106 games, totaling 84 points including 47 goals.
"We have watched Ryan closely the past few years and the two things that stick out the most are: he can score, and he has gotten better every year," said Rangers assistant general manager, Jeff Gorton. "We really like Ryan's work ethic and his drive to get better every day."
The Deans List student spent 2010-11 playing for the U.S. Developemnt Team where he scored seven goals and produced 15 points in 23 games.
The signing of Haggerty is similar to that of defenseman Conor Allen, an undrafted free agent out of UMASS Amherst, last spring. Allen is currently playing with the Hartford Wolf Pack and has appeared in three games with the Rangers this season.
