Steve Larmer finished his long NHL career as a New York Ranger and amassed a number of milestones during his two seasons with the Blueshirts.
During his tenure with the Rangers, he served as an alternate captain, scored his 1,000th NHL career point on March 8, 1995, against New Jersey, and just over a month later played in his 1,000 NHL game on April 20, 1995 against the Hartford Whalers. He began his Rangers career with a goal in his first game as a Blueshirt against Vancouver on November 3, 1993.
Larmer played in two seasons for the Blueshirts, earning 21 goals and 39 assists in 68 regular season games in 1993-94. In the quest for the Cup, Larmer tallied nine goals and seven assists in the 23 game playoff run.
The right wing still had one year remaining on his Rangers contract when he chose to retire before the 1995-96 season due to the chronic back pain that he felt affected his ability to perform at such a high level.
He missed only four games in his thirteen-year NHL career, all as a New York Ranger. In the 1993-94 season he missed three games with a broken right hand and missed one game in 1995 with a sore back.
The Rangers acquired Larmer in a trade that sent Darren Turcotte and James Patrick to the Hartford Whalers on November 2, 1993. Larmer played 13 seasons with the Blackhawks before he was dealt to the Rangers in a three-way trade that saw the Whalers send Larmer to the Rangers, where he was reunited with his old Blackhawks coach, Mike Keenan.
