KINGSTON, Ontario, Aug. 22 (UPI) -- Don "Bones" Raleigh, who played all 535 of his NHL games with the New York Rangers, has died at age 86, his son said.
Jack Raleigh told the Winnipeg Free Press his father, who died Tuesday in Kingston, Ontario, had been in failing health for a couple of years.
In 1950, Raleigh, who earned his nickname because he weighed only about 150 pounds when he reached the NHL as a 17-year-old, became the first player to score back-to-back overtime goals in an Stanley Cup finals.
Raleigh, who also was the first Ranger to score four goals in a single game -- against Chicago on Feb. 25, 1948 -- scored 101 goals with 219 assists in 535 career NHL games.
