BIOGRAPHY
The first Finnish-born player to play for the Rangers, Pentti Lund was the fifth player born on the European continent to wear the Rangers uniform after coming to the team in a 1948 trade with Boston.

As a 6-year-old, Lund emigrated to Canada with his younger brother, where they joined his parents in their adopted home of Port Arthur, Ontario. It was there that Lund learned to play hockey, and he would later go on to serve in the Royal Canadian Navy, from 1943 to 1945, delaying his NHL arrival until after World War II.

Although his time in the Big Apple was relatively brief, he certainly left his mark. Lund won the Calder Memorial Trophy as the NHL Rookie of the Year in 1948-49, becoming the fourth Ranger in 10 years to win that award. He also played a major role in the team`s success during the 1950 playoffs.

During the Rangers` run to the 1950 Cup Finals, where they fell to Detroit in seven games, Lund erupted for a team-leading six goals and 11 points. That included a hat trick in the first-round series against Montreal. During the playoffs, he averaged just under a point per game, more than twice his average from the 1949-50 regular season.
