If Long Island has become one of those hockey hotbeds that can be mentioned in the same breath as New England or Michigan, then Garden City happens to be one of those pockets where you’ll find a goodly amount of hockey moms and dads. If the fact that the Recreation Department dropped six figures to refurbish and relaunch a stellar roller/deck hockey rink isn’t enough proof that the village is teeming with rink rats, the Garden City Wings varsity ice hockey team has laced ‘em up and gotten the new season off to a great start. A recent 7-2 whupping applied to the Oceanside Sailors, no strangers to the State Finals two years running, is an auspicious start for yet another team sport that the youngsters growing up in the Village of Garden City have seemingly gotten a solid handle on.
