The New York Rangers came into being unusual. Madison Square Garden was home to the New York Americans who joined the NHL in 1923. While they were promised exclusivity by then-President of the arena George Lewis ‘Tex’ Rickard, there eventually became a need to give the Americans another team to play against in their home arena. That new franchise was awarded by the NHL to Rickard who established the New York Rangers in 1926.
The Americans eventually went defunct in 1942, but by then the Rangers had already captured the following of fans in the region and won three of their four Stanley Cups by the time the Americans faded away. The New York Rangers are considered one of the oldest hockey teams still in operation in the NHL and have the special designation of being one of the ‘Original Six’ NHL teams.
