Two local businesses are once again bringing a sports icon to town to meet fans. Gentlemen's Corner Barbershop and Cooperstown Connection are teaming up to bring New York Rangers legend Mike Richter to New Hartford.

Richter had an incredible tenure with the Rangers, playing with them for his entire NHL career. During his run in New York he became known as one of the best goaltenders in hockey. He was named to the NHL All-Star game three times, led the Rangers to a Stanley Cup win in 1994, and is enshrined in the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame. He also won a silver medal in the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.

Richter will be signing memorabilia beginning at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 1st, 2017 at Gentlemen’s Corner Barber Shop. Following the autograph signing there will be an exclusive VIP Meet & Greet event being held at Cavallo's in New Hartford.
