BIOGRAPHY
From the moment he joined the Rangers organization in 1936, Bryan Hextall began to set himself apart as a special star. In his first 18 minor-league games, he led the American Hockey League with 29 goals, prompting a call-up to the Rangers on a full-time basis in 1937.

He would never play in the minor leagues again and would not miss another NHL game for seven straight years until his career was interrupted by his service to the Canadian military during the 1944-45 season. His absence from hockey was then extended by a stomach disorder and liver condition that caused him to miss all but three games of the 1945-46 season.

Hextall was the last Rangers player to lead the NHL in scoring, a feat he accomplished with 56 points in 1941-42. He is also the last Rangers player to have led the league in goals in back-to-back seasons, as he scored a total of 50 in 96 games between 1940 and 1942.

The top scorer for the regular season during the Rangers` 1940 Stanley Cup championship year, Hextall also led the team with four goals during the playoffs. Between 1938-39 and 1943-44, Hextall recorded six straight 20-goal seasons, breaking Bill Cook`s former team record of four straight. he was also named to the NHL First All-Star team three times during that span.

Hextall`s son, Bryan Hextall Jr., also played for the Rangers, and his grandson Ron proved to be a Rangers nemesis during his years as a star goaltender with the Philadelphia Flyers.
