On June 1, 2000, Glen Sather became the New York Rangers` 12th President and 10th General Manager. In the process, he joined an elite group of Rangers players who have had the honor of both playing for and running the New York Rangers` hockey operations.
Sather followed in the footsteps of the legendary Frank Boucher, Muzz Patrick, Emile Francis, Fred Shero and Phil Esposito as ex-Rangers players who went on to become general managers. In serving as the team`s head coach from Jan. 30, 2003, to Feb. 25, 2004, Sather became the Rangers` 15th coach who had also played for the team.
Before Sather returned to New York, he had already authored a remarkable Hall of Fame career over 21 seasons with the Edmonton Oilers. He was the architect of the Oilers` five Stanley Cup Championships between 1984-1990, overseeing the development of a revolutionary team concept as well as some of the finest individual talents ever to play the game. On Sept. 9, 1997, Sather was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame.
Prior to his legendary coaching and management career, Sather played for a decade in the NHL, including two full seasons and parts of two others with the Rangers. Coming to the team in a January 1971 trade, Sather was a left wing on the great 1971-72 team that went all the way to the Stanley Cup Finals against Bobby Orr`s Boston Bruins. Sather had earlier been a teammate of Orr`s for two seasons in Boston.
As a player with the Rangers, Sather appeared in 188 regular season games, registering 18 goals and 24 assists for 42 points, along with 193 penalty minutes. His 188 games with the Blueshirts were his most with any NHL team in a career that also included stints in Boston, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Montreal and Minnesota.
