The Beginning
The Madison Garden Square (MSG) received a franchise from the National Hockey League to operate its own team for the 1926-27 season. G.L. ‘Tex’ Rickard, the president of MSG arranged to assemble and build a team of talented players with the help of University of Toronto’s Conn Smythe. The team was dubbed ‘Tex’s Rangers,’ and this is how the team got its name.
Lester Patrick, one of professional hockey’s pioneers was handed over the task of guiding the Rangers during the beginning of its first season. He directed the Rangers to their first Stanley Cup. This was the last time, and after this, no other NHL team has ever won the Stanley Cup in its sophomore year.
The Rangers played hard, but clean, and were very innovative. They reached the finals four times in six years, and were known as the ‘classiest’ of all teams. In its 80th season in the NHL, the Rangers have made the New Yorkers proud of the empire they have built. Honoring The Greats
