|1993-1994||New York Rangers|
Richter owns two special places in hockey history. He's the goalie who helped the New York Rangers end their 54-year Stanley Cup drought in 1994 and was MVP when the United States defeated Canada in the final of the World Cup of Hockey in 1996.
Ironically, considering the only team he played for during his NHL career, Richter grew up in Flourtown, Pennsylvania, and idolized Philadelphia Flyers goalie Bernie Parent, the Conn Smythe Trophy winner when the Flyers won the Stanley Cup in 1974 and 1975. However, it was the Rangers who selected Richter in the second round (No. 28) of the 1985 NHL Draft.
