BIOGRAPHY
One of several future Hall of Famers who broke into the NHL with the Rangers in the 1930, Pratt was discovered by Rangers coach Lester Patrick while he was attending Patrick`s hockey school at Winnipeg in 1934. The Rangers signed him the following year, and he opened the 1935-36 season with the Blueshirts` minor-league affiliate in Philadelphia.

Once Pratt arrived in the NHL for good in January 1936, he emerged as a fan favorite and pillar on defense for the Blueshirts. He was part of the Rangers` 1940 Stanley Cup championship team and went on to win the Hart Trophy as the NHL`s MVP with the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1943-44.
