A Forgotten Blueshirt

From Stan Fischler at MSGNetwork.com:

Wilson, a former Ranger, played in 580 consecutive National Hockey League games, eclipsing the record of 508, set by an original Ranger, Murray Murdoch.

Many who knew Wilson—he passed away on Tuesday at the age of 82—mourn his death not merely for what he accomplished in hockey with Toronto, Detroit, Chicago and New York, but for the grand person that he was.
