BIOGRAPHY
The third captain in Rangers history, Ott Heller was a member of two Stanley Cup championship teams and left the team in 1946 having played more consecutive seasons than any other Rangers player to that date.

Heller`s 14-year NHL career was spent entirely with the Rangers, and he went to the Stanley Cup Finals four times in that span. At age 29, he played a key role in the team`s 1940 championship, picking up three assists in 12 playoff games. He also had three points — all goals — during the team`s 1933 run to the Cup.

Heller joined the Rangers organization through the team`s farm club in Springfield, Mass., signing with the Indians after being scouted by Rangers general manager Lester Patrick in 1929. Two years after joining Springfield as a 19-year-old, Heller was up with the Rangers, where he would remain for the next 14 years.

Originally a right wing, Heller shifted to defense early in his pro career.
