By Peter BaderThe New York Rangers are the latest NHL team to roll out new disability policies that are expected to boost the popularity of the disabled community in the New Yorker’s capital.
The Rangers announced Tuesday that they are rolling out a new policy that will allow the team to provide a wheelchair access ramp for their players and staff.
The new policy also includes a provision that allows the team’s coaches and players to be designated to assist disabled players, including those who have a disability that limits mobility.
The New Jersey Devils announced last week that they will also roll out a policy similar to the Rangers’ new policy, though the team has yet to provide any details on how the policy will work or how long it will last.
It’s not clear how long this new policy will be in effect, though it could be in place for up to six months, the NHL announced.
