  Χ  RETIRED NUMBERS

 

#1 Eddie Giacomin
Position:
Goaltender
Born: 6/16/1939
Birthplace: Sudbury, Ontario - Canada
Number Retired: 3/15/1989

Only the second Ranger to have his number retired, Giacomin was part of one of the best teams in Ranger history.  Eddie's career with the Blueshirts came to a disappointing end when he was placed on waivers and claimed by the Detroit Red Wings.  Three days later Giacomin returned to MSG with the Wings and was cheered on as he lead his new team to victory. 

 
#2 Brian Leetch
Position:
Defense
Born: 3/3/1968
Birthplace: Corpus Christi, Texas - USA
Number Retired: 1/24/2008

"Forever A Ranger" and "The Greatest Ranger" ever.  The former was the theme for Leetch's retirement night, the latter was the common theme both in the papers and from his team mates.  Leetch's career spanned 17 seasons with the Rangers and he finished second in Games Played as a Rangers, and Points, and he finished his career the all time leader in assists.

 
#3 Harry Howell
Position:
Defense
Born: 12/28/1932
Birthplace: Hamilton, ON - Canada
Number Retired: February 22nd, 2009

No other player has appeared in more games for the Rangers than Harry Howell.  Howell continues his association with the Rangers as a scout for the team.

 

 
#7 Rod Gilbert
Position:
Right Wing
Born: 7/1/1941
Birthplace: Montreal, Quebec - Canada
Number Retired: 10/14/1979

The first Ranger to have his number retired, Gilbert bled red white and blue.  The Hall of Famer spent an impressive 18 seasons on Broadway before age finally got the better of him.  The right-hand man on one of the best Ranger lines ever, Gilbert holds team records for Goals and Points and is second only to Brian Leetch in Assists.

 

 
#9 Adam Graves
Position:
Left Wing
Born: 4/12/1968
Birthplace: Tecumseh, Ontario - Canada
Number Retired: February 3rd, 2009

Adam Graves joined the Rangers in 1991 and quickly established himself as a fan favorite.  The former Oiler and Red Wing came to the Rangers as a young, relatively unproven rugged winger, but quickly found a scoring touch that ultimately lead him to break the Rangers single season goal scoring record while playing along side Mark Messier.  Grave picked up 52 goals in 1993-94 and was a key member of the Stanley Cup team that year, adding another 10 in the playoffs.  Graves played out his NHL career with the Sharks, but returned to New York to take a front office position with the Rangers.  Graves will have his #9 retired in the 2008-09 season.

 

 
#9 Andy Bathgate
Position:
Center
Born: 8/28/1932
Birthplace: Winnipeg, Manitoba - Canada
Number Retired: February 22nd, 2009

Bathgate's career with the Rangers spanned twelve seasons, but it was a time when the Rangers struggled. Averaging more than a point a game, the Winnipeg native was often among the league leaders in scoring.  Late in the 1963-64 season, Bathgate was traded to the Maple Leafs in a seven player swap, going on to win the Cup with his new team.  Bathgate wore four numbers with the Rangers, but saw his #9 retired less that three weeks after the team raised it to the Rafters in honor of Adam Graves.

 

 
#11 Mark Messier
Position:
Center
Born: 1/18/1961
Birthplace: Edmonton, Alberta - Canada
Number Retired: 1/12/2006

By the time that Mark Messier came to the New York Rangers, he was already a well accomplished player.  Messier had raised the cup with Edmonton on five separate occasions, including once without friend and fellow team mate Wayne Gretzky, who had been traded away.  Messier came to New York with both questions and hope, what he brought was the leadership and personality the Rangers had desired for so long.  By the time his tenure was over, Messier would have dispelled the demons and delivered a Stanley Cup to the Rangers for the first time in 54 years.

Given many nicknames during his tenure with New York, Messier is probably best known as simply The Captain.

 

 
#35 Mike Richter
Position:
Goalie
Born: 9/22/1986
Birthplace: Abington, Pennsylvania - USA
Number Retired: 2/4/2004

A lifelong Ranger, Richter will be best remembered as the goaltender on the Rangers 1993-94 Stanley Cup team.  The franchise leader in numerous stats, Richter is the only Ranger netminder to record 300 or more wins for the team.

His career cut short by injury, Richter remains to this day one of the most popular players to wear the Rangers jersey.
