Discovered by Rangers general manager Lester Patrick at Patrick`s hockey school in Winnipeg, Alex Shibicky joined the Blueshirts organization in 1934 and made his NHL debut the following season.
During the period from 1936 to 1942, Shibicky was one of the Rangers` top scorers and led the team in goals with 24 in 1938-39. He played a key role in the run to the 1940 Stanley Cup championship, tying for third on the team with seven points while playing on a liine with brothers Neil and Mac Colville.
Shibicky`s career, however, was interrupted by World War II, and he missed three seasons serving in the Canadian Army. When he returned from the war, Shibicky rejoined the Rangers in 1945 to play one final season.
