BIOGRAPHY
The youngest captain in New York Rangers history, Dave Maloney first wore the "C" in 1978-79 — the fifth of his 11 seasons with the Blueshirts.

Maloney joined the team as an 18-year-old after being drafted in the first round with the Rangers` special exemption that allowed them to select one underage junior player in a draft where the minimum age was 20. When he made his NHL debut at Madison Square Garden on Dec. 18, 1974, Maloney was at that time the youngest player ever to play for the Rangers at only 18 years and four months old.

Maloney saw limited action with the Rangers in his first two pro seasons, spending most of his time with the AHL`s Providence Reds and losing part of the 1975-76 season to a broken leg. In 1976, however, Maloney made the Rangers out of training camp and was a fixture among defensemen for the next eight years. In his first full season, he won the West Side Trophy as the team`s MVP.

Over his first two NHL seasons, Maloney faced his share of injuries, missing part of the 1976-77 season with a severed flexor tendon in his arm and part of the 1977-78 season with torn ligaments in his knee. But his perseverance paid off on Oct 11, 1978, when at age 22, he became the youngest captain in N.Y. Rangers history and the youngest among all NHL teams that season.

The 17th captain in team history, Maloney held that honor for the next two seasons and was wearing the "C" when the Rangers beat the Islanders to reach the 1979 Stanley Cup Finals.

By the early 1980s, Maloney was battling another string of injuries, which limited him to just one full season between 1981-82 and 1983-84. In December of 1984, his long run with the team ended when he was traded to Buffalo. He played out the 1984-85 season with the Sabres and retired in 1985.

Maloney, whose younger brother Don was his Rangers teammate from 1978 to 1984, returned to the Blueshirts as the team`s radio color commentator in 2005.
