BIOGRAPHY
The 21st captain in Rangers history, Kelly Kisio spent five seasons in New York from 1986 to 1991, and wore the "C" for the last three and a half years of his stint with the Blueshirts. During that span, he netted five straight 20-goal seasons and averaged just under 70 points per year.

The Rangers acquired Kisio in the multiplayer deal that saw former starting goaltender Glen Hanlon go to Detroit. In his first season, Kisio tallied 24 goals and 40 assists for 64 points and 73 penalty minutes in 70 games.

The talented and feisty center`s best years as a Ranger came in 1987-88 and 1988-89 when he posted a number of career highs. In the 1987-88 campaign, he tallied a career high 55 assists. The following season he netted another career high in goals with 26, and shared the fan-chosen Steven McDonald Extra Effort Award with John Vanbiesbrouck.

Kisio left the Rangers when Minnesota selected him in the 1991 Expansion Draft. Within days, he was traded to San Jose, where he would become an All-Star before retiring after the 1994-95 season.
