Dave Kerr played seven seasons for the Rangers.On Mar. 18, 1938, Kerr became the first hockey player to be on the cover of Time Magazine.
His best season was the 1939-40 season. He won his only Vezina Trophy as the league’s top goalie with a 1.54 GAA and a league-leading eight shutouts. He and the Rangers went on to win the Stanley Cup. Head coach Frank Boucher was very impressed with Kerr.
“Kerr was gifted with an excellent right hand that picked off shots like Bill Terry playing first for the (Baseball’s NY) Giants. He was deliberate and methodical in everything he did. Davey retired long before his time, when he was at his peak and only 30 years old,” said Boucher via New York Rangers Legends.
Though many fans may not recognize his name, many know his team. Until 1994, Dave Kerr was the last Rangers goaltender to win Lord’s Stanley Cup.
