Antti Raanta is not from New York. That much is pretty obvious; he’s very much Finnish.
But as he’s getting set to spend his second season with the Rangers - with another to come after - he’s made it clear New York is home.
How? With his goalie masks, of course: two tributes to the NYPD and FDNY.
The NYPD mask isn’t that new; the FDNY only just came into existence as a great complement to it.
This is seriously something really cool to do on Raanta’s part, and it didn’t go unnoticed by the FDNY.
Well said! Here’s to New York’s first responders - and backup goalie - all doing just that.
