Hockey Memorabilia From The Estate Of Rangers Legend, Murray Murdoch
Murray Murdoch was a fixture in Lester Patrick's line up for his entire NHL career, spanning 11 seasons and 508 games. The left wing wasn't a prolific scorer (only 84 goals worth), but his longevity was the mark that latter-day players compared themselves to. Murdoch never missed a game in his Blueshirts career, and only two other original Rangers lasted as long as Murdoch: Bill Cook retired along with Murdoch after the 1936-37 season (though missing 33 games along the way), and Frank Boucher played 12 consecutive seasons and 518 total games (not counting the short comeback in 1943-44).
Murdoch was used primarily as a checking wing, allowing the Cook brothers and Frank Boucher to work their magic with the puck. His biggest scoring output came in the 1933-34 season, when he tallied 17 goals and 27 points. There were only two pther season's when Murdoch's goal total reached double figures (13 in 1929-30, 14 in 1934-35), and in his final season he had 14 assists but no goals.
Murdoch was there from the very beginning of the franchise, and headed for retirement with a pair of Stanley Cup championship rings. Murdoch's playing career ended on Broadway, but he took his act north to New Haven, where he went on to a long and successful coaching career at Yale University.
