Inside Big Apple Hockey

While some travel to New York for shopping, dining and musicals, others go there for sports. Catch a game at Madison Square Garden and get the chance to meet and greet with Scandinavian hockey stars Mats Zuccarello and Henrik Lundqvist.

It can be difficult to imagine the excitement and atmosphere of an American hockey game until you’ve actually been to one. Put on a customize hockey jersey, get yourself some American snacks and watch the New York Rangers against the Washington Capitals at Madison Square Garden, one of the world’s most famous sports arenas. 

After the match you’ll meet two of the hottest names within hockey at the moment, Mats Zuccarello and Henrik Lundqvist. The private meet and greet event is for SAS Dreams guests only, and offers an exclusive opportunity to mingle with the stars. A true once in a lifetime experience!

Enjoy a delicious dinner with the rest of the group in the evening before you return to Eventi Kimpton Hotel, a cutting-edge hotel in the heart of Chelsea, just a few minutes’ walk from Madison Square Garden.

The next day is all yours. Explore the city by yourself or sign up for an organized activity. Visit the Ground Zero memorial, enjoy shopping with a private guide or join a helicopter sightseeing tour for a bird's eye view of New York City. If you are craving more fun on the ice, go ice-skating in Central Park.
