Bob Nevin , a two-time Stanley Cup winner with the Maple Leafs and former Rangers captain , has died at 82 . Lightning captain Steven Stamkos, who's been out for six months, took part in morning skate Monday but his Game 2 status is still iffy.

While Bathgate helped the Maple Leafs win another championship in 1964, Nevin became an important part of the Rangers, serving as captain of the team from 1965 to 1971.

He helped the underachieving club end a four-year playoff drought in 1967, and led the Rangers to their first series win in 21 years in 1971, when New York beat the Leafs 4-2 in the quarterfinals.

The 2009 book "100 Ranger Greats" listed Nevin at No. 51.

Nevin was dealt to the North Stars before the 1971-72 season and spent two seasons in Minnesota before joining Los Angeles.

His career was rejuvenated in his three seasons with the Kings. He had his highest-scoring campaign in his penultimate NHL season, putting up 31 goals and 41 assists with Los Angeles in 1974-75.

Nevin joined the World Hockey Association's Edmonton Oilers for the 1976-77 season, but suffered a broken collarbone 13 game into the campaign and retired.

Bob Nevin . Quite the same Wikipedia. Robert Frank Nevin (born March 18, 1938) is a former professional ice hockey right wing who Nevin scored 21 goals as a rookie with the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1960–61, and finished second in the Calder Memorial Trophy voting to teammate Dave Keon.

The 1998–99 Toronto Maple Leafs season was the franchise's 82 nd season. Two moves occurred this season. First, the club moved from the Western to the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League (NHL). Secondly, the club moved from Maple Leaf Gardens to the new Air Canada Centre.

Nevin, who the Maple Leafs had at No. 64 on their list of 100 all-time players released for their 2016 centennial season, lived in the Toronto area after his 19-year playing career.

"Bob was ever-present at Leafs games and within the Alumni community," the Maple Leafs said in a Twitter post. "Our deepest sympathies go out to Bob's wife Linda."

Nevin, one of the first NHL players to wear contact lenses, was part of one of hockey's more surreal moments when he lost a lens during Toronto's 1962 game against the Blackhawks in Chicago. Time was called, and players and officials dropped to their knees to scour the ice looking for the wayward lens. It never turned up.

Rangers have work to do despite having top pick in NHL draft .
New York Rangers president John Davidson refuses to get ahead of himself with his team in the unique position of holding the No. 1 pick in the NHL draft while also coming off an appearance in the expanded 24-team playoffs. Exciting as it is having the opportunity to add someone such as projected top pick, Quebec-born play-making forward Alexis Lafreniere, to a young, re-tooling roster once the draft opens Tuesday night, Davidson cautioned the Rangers aren’t anywhere close to being a contender just yet. The Rangers only made the playoffs because the NHL expanded the format to 24, rather than 16 teams.
