BIOGRAPHY
The first man to score 50 goals in one season as a New York Ranger and the captain of the Blueshirts team that went to the 1972 Stanley Cup Finals, Vic Hadfield was a rare combination of physical power and goal-scoring finesse during his 13 seasons in New York.

Picked up from the Chicago organization in 1961, Hadfield took awhile before establishing himself as a top-notch scorer. It wasn`t until the 1967-68 season that he scored 20 goals for the first time, but once he was placed on the GAG (Goal-a-Game) Line with Jean Ratelle and Rod Gilbert, Hadfield`s became one of the league`s elite scorers.

After four straight 20-goal seasons from 1968 to 1971, Hadfield put on one of the team`s greatest individual performances during the 1971-72 season. He notched 50 goals, including two on the final day of the season, to enter the Rangers record books as the team`s first 50-goal scorer.

Hadfield`s single season Rangers goals record stood for 22 years until it was broken by Adam Graves in 1993-94. In addition, Hadfield set a record with 23 power play goals in 1971-72. That mark stood for 34 years until it was broken by Jaromir Jagr in 2005-06.

Traded to Pittsburgh for the final years of his NHL career, Hadfield left the Rangers at the end of the 1973-74 season ranked fourth in career goals and points.
