BIOGRAPHY
The sixth man to serve as captain of the New York Rangers, defenseman Frank Eddolls spent five years with the Blueshirts and was part of the 1950 team that went to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals before falling to Detroit.

Eddolls, who served in the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War II, came to the Rangers in a major 1947 trade with Montreal that also featured Buddy O`Connor. The addition of O`Connor and Eddolls paid instant dividends for the Rangers, who snapped a six-year postseason drought by reaching the 1948 Stanley Cup playoffs.

Eddolls missed the first half of the 1948-49 season after injuring his leg in an automobile accident that also sidelined three other Rangers, including O`Connor. He rebounded nicely from the setback and later represented the Rangers in the 1951 All-Star Game. Following his retirement in 1954, he spent one season back in the NHL as Chicago`s head coach.
