BIOGRAPHY
The greatest "Iron Man" in New York Rangers history, left wing Andy Hebenton played a remarkable 560 consecutive games for the Bluieshirts from 1955 to 1963. Including playoff games, Hebenton`s total reaches 582 — also a Rangers record.

Hebenton arrived in New York in the summer of 1955 after the Rangers purchased his rights from the WHL`s Victoria Cougars. He was the first player added by general manager Muzz Patrick after Patrick took the team`s helm.

Over the next eight years, Hebenton registered four 20-goal seasons and led all NHL rookies with 24 goals in 1954-55. During his stretch with the Blueshirts, he also won the Lady Byng Trophy as the league`s most gentlemanly player in 1956-57 and played in the 1960 NHL All-Star Game at the Montreal Forum.

When he left the NHL in 1964 after a final season with the Boston Bruins, Hebenton had played in a then-record 630 consecutive games. His streak stood as a league record for the next 12 years until it was broken by Garry Unger. Hebenton`s Rangers streak, however, still stands, and could only be broken by a player able to go for nearly seven straight seasons without missing a game.
