We have seen a number of tragic instances where young people participating in sports have experienced tragic cardiac events. As a result, Governor Hochul has passed a law requiring all venues to have an AED device and trained personnel. We are ready and well ahead of the deadline. Island Garden, thanks in large part to our partnership with Northwell Health has both an AED readily available as well as trained personnel who are prepared to act in an emergency. In addition, we will be training all Lightning coaches so that all of our sites are in the same state of preparation.
We have always been committed to the safety of every player and spectator and, as a result, we are prepared for this new law.
When choosing a league or travel organization, we hope that this is something else you will consider.
