Unfortunately a lot of the gear he had did not come back to his family and a lot of it was lost.
I am looking into putting together a display with the two jersey and hopefully some other mem. would you guys be able to help me in finding any old ranger stuff from this era would be great.
even a hall of fame or something that displays stuff form this era or player would be nice as he has all but been forgotten in my home town
Wow I was just looking at Ott Heller stuff last night before I went to sleep. Saw a Rangers jersey circa 1933 on eBay and was thinking of getting it and putting #14 on it in honor of him.
I have been a big believer that Ott's number 14 should be in the rafters at MSG as well as #7 co owned with Boucher, #3 co owned with Johnson, #5 Bill Cook, #6 Fred Cook. Bryan Hextall, Lynn Patrick, Neil Colville...
The early greats haven't gotten enough love, IMO.
Ott 14 year NHL career all with the Rangers, captain, two time Stanley Cup Champion.
Your great Uncle was a great.
There are some nice hockey cards on eBay of your great uncle.
