Sergei Zubov elected to Hockey Hall of Fame

Former Ranger Sergei Zubov has been elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame as part of the 2019 class. The Blueshirts’ fifth round pick (85th overall, so he’d be a third rounder nowadays) in 1990, Zubov’s career with the Rangers was short but impactful. In 165 games with the Rangers, he put up a line of 30-126-156. This includes a line of 12-77-89, leading the Rangers in points in 1993-1994.

The Rangers foolishly dealt Zubov with Petr Nedved to Pittsburgh in 1995, bringing back Ulf Samuelsson and Luc Robitaille. A year later he was dealt to Dallas for Kevin Hatcher. Something about those big defensemen who couldn’t skate in the 90’s, man.

Zubov’s career finished after 12 years in Dallas and one Stanley Cup. His career line was 152-619-771 in 1,068 games. Zubov also put up 24-93-117 in 164 career playoff games.

    Loved him as a Ranger and hated to see him traded, which Neil Smith said was a mistake. Congratulations he deserves it.

    Great for Sergei, well deserved. When it comes to trades, like Tony posted yesterday, may well be one of the worst in our long history.

    Thank Messier for making the Rangers trade a HOFamer.

    Well deserved acknowledgement.

        He crippled this team for 10 years after we won the cup.

        Zubov wasn’t “tough enough” and yet he played almost 15 years. Go figure.

    I was among the very angry when Sergei was traded. But it is just great that he will be in the hall!

      FYI. Zubov won 2 cups. Winning his 2nd with Dallas.
