Rangers Send ‘9' to the Rafters

It was a very emotional night Tuesday at Madison Square Garden. The New York Rangers retired the number of forward Adam Graves before their game against Atlanta. 52 of Graves' 329 career goals came during the Rangers' Cup-winning 1993-94 season. Graves also won the Cup in 1990 while with the Edmonton Oilers, but 1993-94 was by far his best season as a pro. He won the Bill Masterton Trophy in 2000-2001. Tears were flowing as current New York captains Scott Gomez, Chris Drury, and Markus Naslund brought out the banner bearing Graves' old number.
