The Rangers are saddened to learn of the passing of Bob Nevin. A captain and fan favorite during his tenure with NYR, his honest, two-way play and leadership earned him the respect & admiration of teammates & fans alike. Our thoughts are with Bob's wife, Linda, and his family. pic.twitter.com/Vv2RP9NhZD

Nevin came to the Rangers in 1964 in the famous Andy Bathgate trade, and almost immediately replaced Bathgate as captain. His career line with the Rangers was 168-174-342 in 505 games over eight seasons.
