Miscellaneous[edit | edit source]
In 1994, the New York Rangers made history by becoming the first (and to this date, the only) NHL team ever to host an All-Star Game, have one of its own named MVP of the All-Star Game, win the President's Trophy, and the Stanley Cup in one season, as no one from the Colorado Avalanche was named MVP of the All-Star Game in 2001.
