The 1963–64 New York Rangers season was the 38th season for the team in the National Hockey League. The Rangers finished 5th in the league and did not qualify for the playoffs.

Off-season[edit | edit source]

On June 4, 1963, goaltender Jacques Plante was traded to the New York Rangers, with Phil Goyette and Don Marshall in exchange for Gump Worsley, Dave Balon, Leon Rochefort, and Len Ronson.

Regular Season[edit | edit source]

A trade that was rumoured most of the season finally took place when the New York Rangers traded Andy Bathgate and Don McKenney to Toronto in exchange for Dick Duff, Bob Nevin, Arnie Brown, Bill Collins and Rod Seiling on February 22, 1964. Ranger fans did not like the deal and in the next game chants of "Muzz must go!" were heard (referring to Muzz Patrick, the Rangers general manager.)
