BIOGRAPHY
A true hockey legend, Bernie "Boom Boom" Geoffrion spent the final two of his 16 NHL seasons with the New York Rangers.

Geoffrion joined the Blueshirts in June 1966 after having spent the previous two years as head coach of the Montreal Canadiens` top farm team in Quebec City. At the time, it seemed Geoffrion`s career was over, but at age 35, he was willing to give the NHL another shot with the Rangers.

In two seasons with the Rangers, Geoffrion scored 22 goals and was hardly up to the standards of his Hall of Fame career in Montreal. Despite his declining skills, he was embraced by Madison Square Garden fans, who also welcomed him as head coach following his retirement in 1968.

Geoffrion coached the Rangers for half of the 1968-69 season before he was replaced behind the bench by general manager Emile Francis. He later went on to coach the Atlanta Flames and his hometown Canadiens.
