The 2011-12 Rangers Broadway Hat Archive

Following the Rangers' first victory of the season, Henrik Lundqvist was seen sporting a black fedora for post-game interviews. Asked about the hat, Lundqvist said: "(Brad Richards) gave it to me. Someone bought it in Europe, and it's going to be our winning hat this year! We call it the Broadway Hat! Someone has to wear it after each win, and today was my turn. I am going to try and wear this hat every game. That's going to be my goal!" Check out all the different Rangers who earned the hat during the 2011-12 season.
