Although he went on to greater success with Chicago, Hall of Fame defenseman Earl Seibert began his illustrious career at Madison Square Garden with the New York Rangers.
After signing with the Rangers` minor-league affiliate out of junior hockey in 1929, Seibert won himself an NHL contract at the end of the 1930-31 season and eventually became the team`s best defenseman, assuming the role long held by Ching Johnson.
At age 21, Seibert played a key role on the Rangers` 1933 Stanley Cup championship team. He later won another Stanley Cup title with Chicago in 1938.
Seibert`s father, Oliver Seibert, is also a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame and was a legendary hockey star prior to the formation of the NHL in 1917.
