One of the most popular players to ever don the Rangers jersey, Ron Duguay played many roles with the Blueshirts during the late 1970's and early 1980's, from skilled offensive force on the ice to New York sex symbol off of it.
Duguay played 499 games with the Rangers, scoring 164 goals and totaling 340 points in that span. He scored more than 20 goals four times with the Rangers, netting a career-high 40 in the 1981-82 season.
Here Duguay poses with three pucks he put into the net, while wearing a hat that was tossed on the ice to celebrate one of the five Hat Tricks he recorded while wearing the Blueshirt.
Duguay's first Hat Trick came on December 18, 1977 at The Garden at the expense of St. Louis goaltender (and future Rangers coach) Ron Low. Then on March 24, 1978 Duguay victimized the Washington Capitals three times at the old Cap Center in Landover, MD. Duguay's third Hat Trick as a Ranger occurred on January 22, 1980 when he put three goals behind Ron Grahame out in Los Angeles. On November 5, 1981 Duguay scored three times in Philadelphia, beating goaltender Rick St. Croix---who just happens to be the father of 2011 Rangers draft pick Michael St. Croix. A month later Duguay recorded his final Hat Trick as a Rangers, beating Peittsburgh's Paul Harrison three times in a tilt at The Garden.
Ron Duguay, who now works as studio analyst for MSG Network, ranks tied for tenth in Rangers history with those five Hat Tricks. Bill Cook is the franchise leader, having recorded 11 Hat Tricks during his tenure on Broadway.
