Rangers Alumnus Harry Howell was inducted into Madison Square Garden's "Walk of Fame" today at MSG. Another Rangers legend and fellow "Walk-of-Famer," Rod Gilbert, was on hand to present Howell with the award. Howell, a defenseman with the Rangers from 1952-53 to 1968-69, played 1,160 games during his 17 seasons as a Blueshirt and earned many honors along the way, including the Rangers MVP (1963-64); Players' Player Award (1964-65, 1966-67); Frank Boucher Trophy (1964-65, 1965-66, 1966-67); and the coveted James Norris Trophy (1966-67).

Other honorees inducted today include Dick McGuire (Knicks), Bob Wolff (Broadcasting), Carol Blazejowski (Women's Basketball) and Vince McMahon (WWE).

Howell, an Ontario native, joins other Rangers Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier, Rod Gilbert and Phil Esposito with a permanent spot in the halls of the "World's Most Famous Arena."
