BIOGRAPHY
Born in Ottawa, Boucher turned professional with his hometown NHL team, the original Ottawa Senators, and later played for the Vancouver Maroons of the Western Hockey League from 1922 to 1926.

In Vancouver, Boucher routinely played against brothers Bill and Bun Cook, who urged Conn Smythe to sign him as their center with the expansion New York Rangers in 1926. Smythe granted the Cooks` request and recruited Boucher as one of the original Rangers. It was an association that would last for many years, as Boucher remained with the Rangers organization for the next three decades, including 11 seasons as the team`s coach.

During his NHL career, Boucher won the Lady Byng Trophy for gentlemanly play a record seven times. No other NHL player ever won the award more than four times.

Boucher was a part of the first three Rangers` Stanley Cup teams and also served as general manager from 1946 to 1955. The Frank Boucher is given each year to the Rangers` Most Popular Player as selected by the team`s fan club.
