And that brings us to the President-elect in Donald Trump. No, this blog isn't going all political on you, but I've tried to find Donald Trump enjoying a game of hockey as much as it appears Barack Obama likes the game. As stated above, Obama seems to know players and their stories, so either he or his staff follow the game enough to make jokes and comment on the game, but I've never once seen or heard Donald Trump speak about the game.
After a little digging, I think I finally the first positive evidence that Trump could be considered a Rangers fan. During a special practice held by the Rangers at Central Park's Wollman Rink, Parks Commissioner Adrian Benepe presented New York Rangers' captain Mark Messier with a Parks cap as Donald Trump holds a Rangers jersey bearing his name.

While I can't say with 100% confidence that the President-elect is a Rangers fan or even a hockey fan in general, Donald Trump does have ties to the Rangers organization from what I've gathered. Whether or not the Rangers will make an appearance at the White House in the next four years to greet the possible Rangers fan as POTUS is another question altogether!
Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
