BIOGRAPHY
One of the greatest natural skaters to ever play for the Rangers, Mike Gartner was a goal-scoring hit at Madison Square Garden from 1989 until 1994.

During his five-year stint, Gartner was an ideal Ranger on and off the ice. He scored at least 40 goals in the three consecutive full seasons he played for New York, becoming the first player in Blueshirt history to do so. He also served as celebrity chairman of the Ice Hockey in Harlem program during the early 1990s, and also worked with local child-abuse prevention programs. This combination of supreme talent and a big heart endeared him to the Garden Faithful.

Gartner came to the Rangers in a 1990 deal that sent Ulf Dahlen, a draft choice and future considerations to Minnesota. In a sign of things to come, he scored two goals in his Blueshirt debut against Philadelphia, and in the 12 remaining regular season games, he tallied 11 goals and five assists for 16 points.

The right wing`s best season came in 1990-91, when he tallied 49 goals, the most scored by a player at that position until Jaromir Jagr netted 54 in 2005-06. During the 1991-92 campaign, Gartneralso became the first player in NHL history to register his 500th goal, his 500th assist and 1,000th point all in the same season. He also set what was then a team playoff record of eight goals and 16 points in the Rangers` 13-game playoff run.

Gartner appeared in his sixth All-Star game, and only as a Ranger, in 1993, taking home MVP honors by scoring four goals. He also won the 1991 and 1993 NHL Fastest Skater competition at the All-Star SuperSkills competition.

In 1992-93, Gartner won the Rangers Boucher Trophy as the Most Popular Blueshirt. He just missed out on a championship the following year, when he was traded to Edmonton in exchange for Glen Anderson with only 13 games left in the season.

Although he never raised the Stanley Cup, Gartner will forever be remembered as one of the greatest players of the 1980s and 1990s. Three years after retiring from the NHL, Gartner was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2001.
