Jim Schoenfeld has nearly done it all during his 40 years of service in the National Hockey League. He played in 719 games covering 13 seasons as a player for three different teams, and was captain of the Buffalo Sabres in that span, after being the fifth overall selection in the 1972 NHL Draft by Buffalo. Schoenfeld owns a career .509 winning percentage as the head coach of the Sabres, New Jersey Devils, Washington Capitals, and Phoenix Coyotes. And now he wears multiple hats with the Rangers---serving as Assistant General Manager to Glen Sather, assistant coach under John Tortorella, and General Manager of the Connecticut Whale.
