Rangers historians.... question for you.
 
Greetings friends!
Quick question for you... probably more geared towards the old-timers. I'm having trouble finding it online.

Anyone out there in Ranger-land happen to know (or know where to find) the date/game of Brad Park's NHL debut? I know it was in 68-69, but did he start the season with the Rangers, or was he a later call-up?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

He played 17 games with the Buffalo Bisons that year leading me to believe that he did not start the season with the Rangers.

I have to thank you for asking this question. Brad Park scored the first NHL goal I ever saw in person. I remembered the score of the game and who played, but not the date. I searched Google and here is a newspaper story from that game. Eddie Giacomin and Les Binkley were the goalies. The game was Dec 23, 1969.

10/23/68 at MSG, a 6-1 win over Oakland. - Not sure how accurate this is, but I found it here: http://rangerland.net/forum/lofivers...php/t2597.html

Looks like it's very accurate... by putting that date and Park's name into Google, you quickly come up with this:

Awesome! Thanks for your help!
