MET-Rx, the leader in sports nutrition and the New York Islanders Hockey Club have teamed up to present the fourth annual MET-Rx Skate with the Greats Sweepstakes. Eight lucky winners will have the opportunity to skate with Islanders Legends at Nassau Coliseum. The month-long sweepstakes kicks off Monday, Feb. 11, 2013 and finishes with the eight winners skating head-to-head with Islanders legends on Saturday, April 6, 2013.

Once the winners are selected, they will begin a customized four-week program with the Islanders training staff in preparation for a scrimmage consisting of three 10-minute periods of hockey on the Coliseum ice with Islanders legends such as Mike Bossy, Doug Weight and Butch Goring.* Each winner will also receive their own customized jersey and uniform socks.

*Legends appearance subject to availability.

Fans can enter the sweepstakes by visiting www.skatewiththegreats.com. The deadline for entries is March 3, 2013. This has been promoted through local media outlets such as Cablevision TV ads, ESPN and WFAN Radio advertisements and News12 Long Island, encouraging the local community to get involved.

“The annual ‘Skate with the Greats’ Sweepstakes stands for everything the Islanders organization is about: the love of hockey and giving back to the community,” four-time Stanley Cup Champion Mike Bossy said. “It’s a great event made¬ even better knowing that we’re aiding NBTY Helping Hands in the process.”

Owned by Long Island’s leading nutritional supplement company NBTY, MET-Rx has been a proud sponsor of the Islanders since 2007. “Skate with the Greats has been an incredible event for MET-Rx and we are excited to be partnering with the Islanders again this year. For a few lucky Islanders’ fans, this event is the opportunity of a lifetime as they get to play with some of the greatest Islanders of all time. This year we are happy that the proceeds from the event will benefit NBTY Helping Hands, a local charity that does a great job of giving back to Long Island,” Vice President of MET-Rx, Patrick Cornacchiulo said.
