BIOGRAPHY
A local star in the senior leagues of Port Arthur, Ontario, Edgar Laprade was on the Rangers` reserve list as early as 1939, but didn`t elect to sign with the team until he was 26 years old. Once he got to the NHL, he never looked back in authoring a Hall of Fame career.

Laprade joined the Rangers in 1945 after serving in the Canadian Army for two years during World War II. He wasted no time earning NHL Rookie of the Year honors with 34 points in 49 games, and within three years had helped turn the Blueshirts into legitimate title contenders.

One of the best stickhandlers in Rangers history, Laprade`s greatest moments came during the 1950 playoffs, when he was part of a team that went all the way to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals before falling to Detroit. He was named the Rangers` MVP for that remarkable season.

Known for his gentlemanly play, Laprade won the Lady Byng Trophy in 1949-50 and played in four consecutive NHL All-Star Games between 1947 and 1950.

Laprade retired 11 games into the 1952-53 season to focus on a sporting goods store he owned in his hometown of Port Arthur. His value to the Rangers was so great, however, that he and general manager Frank Boucher began to discuss a return to the team. He not only returned on Dec. 29, 1953, but went on to play another full season before retiring for good at age 35.
