Rod Gilbert joined the New York Rangers near the end of the 1960–61 NHL season. He soon became popular with the Rangers' fans, and he rose in prominence as an NHL star. Gilbert was out of action for half a season, but he bounced back in 1966–67 and scored 28 goals. On February 24, 1968, he scored four goals in a game against the Montreal Canadiens. He won the Bill Masterton Trophy in 1976 for his perseverance over his back troubles. Gilbert's number 7 was retired by the Rangers on October 14, 1979, the first number to be retired by the team.
