The Hypnotist
September 6, 2004

The Rangers have had quite a few odd happenings in their history, and this event during the 1950-51 season was no different.

Early in the season the Rangers needed a spark to end a twelve game losing streak. Rangers G.M. Frank Boucher was so desperate that he brought in a New York hypnotist Dr. David Tracy. He claimed he could give the team some confidence by putting them in trance.

"Lets try it,' said Boucher. "Some of my boys are playing like they're already half asleep."

Prior to their game against the Boston Bruins on November 15th, the doctor stood in the center of the Rangers dressing room and had several players under his spell. The doctor delivered words of inspiration and encouragement and then snapped his fingers to awaken them.

When the players exited the locker room and went out on the ice for warm-ups, one of the players said, "What'd you think of all of that?"

"Not much,' said Tony Leswick. "The guy didn't have any effect on me."

The Rangers played well that night. They showed plenty of confidence that night against the Bruins. The game was tied 3-3 in the third period until Bruins defenseman Bill Quackenbush's long shot snuck through Chuck Rayner's legs in the final minute to give the Bruins a 4-3 win.

Dr. Tracy was devastated. He said, "Next time I'll concentrate more on the Ranger goaltender, Charlie Rayner."

But he never got that chance. He was never invited back.
