The son of Rangers original head coach Lester Patrick, Lynn Patrick was always destined to join the team once his family moved east from Victoria, B.C. when he was only 14 years old.
Patrick arrived at Madison Square Garden for the start of the 1934-35 season and instantly established himself as one of the team`s top players. He would spend the next nine years in a Rangers uniform before leaving the team to join the U.S. military from 1943 to 1945.
After completing his service in World War II, Patrick returned to the Rangers for one final season at age 33. Following his retirement, Patrick coached the Blueshirts for part of the 1948-49 season and the entire 1949-50 season, in which he led the Blueshirts to the Stanley Cup Finals.
Lynn and Lester Patrick were the first father-son duo to coach the team. The second duo was Lynn and his son Craig, who coached the team in the early 1980s. The Rangers remain the only NHL team to have been coached by three generations of the same family. Lynn`s younger brother Muzz was also a teammate of his with the Rangers from 1938 to 1941.
Lynn Patrick enjoyed his finest NHL season in 1941-42 when he scored a career-high 32 goals to lead the entire league and earned his lone selection to the NHL`s first all-star team.
Later iin his career, Patrick coached and served as a front office executive with the Boston Bruins before becoming the first general manager of the St. Louis Blues.
