New York Rangers Tickets
Since the team's founding in 1926 by George Lewis "Tex" Rickard, the New York Rangers have been competing in the National Hockey League. Only a year into the team's founding, the Rangers won the Stanley Cup in the 1927-28 season. The team won the championship again during the 1932-33, 1939-40 and 1993-1994 seasons. The Rangers won the division title in 1931-32, too. Seeing as Rickard was also the owner of Madison Square Garden, the major sports and events arena became home to all New York Rangers games. The Rangers logo remained consistent over the decades as a shield with "New York" written across it. Quite a number of Rangers players have been inducted into the hall of fame, including Brian Leetch for his defensive play and team leadership, Brad Park for his defensive play, Jean Ratelle as the NHL’s sixth all-time scorer, Bryan Hextall for his goalie work and Mark Messier for 10 seasons as a Ranger.
