BIOGRAPHY
Were it not for the great Bobby Orr, Hall of Famer Brad Park would probably be remembered as the best NHL defenseman of the late 1960s and early 1970s.

The first Rangers draft pick ever to play for the team, Park was a sensation even before he got to the Rangers in 1968 after starring for the Toronto Marlboros of the Ontario Hockey Association. Although he did not make the Blueshirts out of training camp as a 20-year-old, he was soon called up to the team and spent the next seven years thrilling fans at Madison Square Garden.

Park`s best season came in 1973-74 — an utterly dominating performance in which he led the team with 25 goals and 57 assists for 82 points. His 25 goals still stand as a Rangers record for defenseman — Park`s only major record that was not subsequently broken by either Ron Greschner or Brian Leetch.

Following his career-best season, Park was named captain of the Blueshirts and held that position until he was sent to Boston as part of the major trade that also involved Jean Ratelle, Phil Esposito and Carol Vadnais.

In Boston, and later Detroit, Park would continue to build on his Hall of Fame resume. Following his retirement in 1985, he briefly coached in the NHL and later returned to the Rangers as a pro scout.
