One of the most popular figures to ever wear the New York Rangers uniform, Adam Graves spent 10 years with the Blueshirts, setting a watermark in professional sports for excellence both on and off the ice.
Drafted by Detroit, Graves won the Stanley Cup with Edmonton before signing with the Rangers in 1991. He had an immediate impact in New York, registering 26 goals and 33 assists for 59 points in his first season with the Rangers.
Graves will always be best known for his achievements and contributions to the Rangers magical 1994 Stanley Cup team, helping break a 54-year old championship draught. "Gravy" set the Rangers` single season record for most goals in the 1993-94 season, tallying 52 goals to break Vic Hadfield’s 22-year old mark of 50. His record stood for 12 years before Jaromir Jagr notched 54 in the 2005-06 campaign.
Graves also recorded 27 assists for 79 points, appeared NHL All-Star Game, and was named as an NHL Second Team All-Star in 1993-94.
Although it would have been hard for any player to author an encore to his 1993-94 season, Graves appeared in seven more solid seasons in New York, recording at least 20 goals in five of those years.
From 1991-2001, the Rangers` No. 9 won numerous league and team honors. He was recognized by the NHL with its King Clancy Memorial Trophy in 1994, presented annually to the NHL player "who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and has made noteworthy humanitarian contributions to his community".
In 2000, Graves was honored with the NHL Player Foundation award, "recognizing the NHL player who applies the core values of hockey - -commitment, perseverance and teamwork — to enrich the lives of people in his community.”
The Professional Hockey Writer`s Association awarded Graves the Bill Masterton Trophy in 2001 as the "NHL player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey."
In addition, Graves has received numerous Rangers` team awards, including the Most Valuable Player honor in 1992-93 and 1993-94.
Outside his numerous league and team awards, Graves has been recognized with honors from countless organizations and publications for his achievements in the community, including USA Weekend`s "Most Caring Athlete" Award, Sports Illustrated for Kids` "Good Sport" Award and The Sporting News` "Good Guy" Award.
Traded to San Jose at the 2001 NHL Draft, Graves played two seasons for the Sharks before retiring in 2003 from a shoulder injury. He returned to the Rangers organization in the summer of 2005 as Special Assistant, Prospect Development and Community Relations. In this role, he assists in the Blueshirts` many community outreach and fan development programs and also works with the team`s young prospects as they prepare for a life in pro hockey.
