Rangers Officially To Retire Jean Ratelle's Number on February 25, 2018

The Rangers officially announced today that they will be retiring Rangers legend Jean Ratelle’s number 19 in a ceremony before the February 25, 2018 game vs. the Detroit Red Wings.

Larry Brooks of the New York Post wrote earlier this year that the team would retire Ratelle’s number this season, but the Rangers confirmed it today in a full press release.

The retirement of Ratelle’s number 19 means that Jesper Fast will have to change his number again. Fast started his NHL career in 2013-2014 with number 12 before changing to 19 for the past three seasons.
