After a long and fruitful career, New York Rangers Senior Advisor to the Owner and Alternate Governor Glen Sather is officially announcing his retirement from both the franchise and the rest of the National Hockey League. 

A five-time Stanley Cup winner as an executive with the Edmonton Oilers during their glory years of the 1980s, Sather joined the Rangers in 2000 and has earned the most wins of any GM in franchise history. 

“Having the opportunity to be associated with the National Hockey League, and specifically the New York Rangers and Edmonton Oilers, has been one of the great privileges of my life,” Sather said. “I want to thank Jim Dolan for giving me the chance to work for the Rangers 24 years ago and for his consistent guidance and friendship. I want to thank everyone in the Rangers organization for their dedication and pursuit of excellence throughout the years, as well as the family atmosphere they helped create. I would also like to thank the great Rangers fans for their passion and loyalty. This experience is something I will always treasure.”

“From the time he joined the Rangers organization 24 years ago, Glen Sather has been the consummate professional,” said James L. Dolan, Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Madison Square Garden Sports Corp. “I am thankful for the friendship that Glen and I have had over these many years and for the success he helped bring the Rangers franchise during his tenure. Glen, Ann, and his family will always be a part of the Rangers and Madison Square Garden family, and I wish them all the best in the years ahead.”

“I would like to congratulate Glen on his tremendous career,” said Chris Drury, Rangers President and General Manager. “I will forever be grateful to Glen for giving me the opportunity to play for the Rangers, and I was so fortunate to lean on him for guidance as I began my own career in the front office. I wish Glen – along with Ann and the entire Sather family – best of luck in the next chapter of their lives.”

Congrats to Sather on an incredible career and best of luck in the future!
