Mats Zuccarello is showing that hockey is for everyone. He has been named the You Can Play Ambassador for the Rangers. The You Can Play project is a nonprofit organization committed to supporting the LGBTQ community and fighting homophobia in sports.

Per the Hockey is for Everyone calendar, the Rangers will participate in festivities on February 5th when they host the Calgary Flames, and on February 7th when they host the Anaheim Ducks. I’d like to see them on the calendar more, considering the city in which they play.

The NHL is doing a wonderful thing for equal rights and fighting hate. Kudos to Zucc for taking on a role in the effort.
