June 27--Don Raleigh

Don (Bones) Raleigh

Scouted and signed by Rangers as a free agent in 1943.

With the ranks of the NHL having been depleted by the call to enlist for World War II, young players such as 17-year-old Raleigh were called up to fill out the NHL's rosters.
Raleigh spent his entire ten year NHL career with the Rangers. In 535 regular season games, he scored 101 goals, 219 assists for a total of 320 points with only 96 PIMS. He finished among the NHL’s top ten scorers four times reaching as high as 4th. In 18 playoff games, Raleigh scored 6 goals and added 5 assists for 11 points (6 PIMS)

Received this blue ink signed card TTM. I also have the envelope and index cards somewhere.
