Jean Ratelle, Vic Hadfield and Rod Gilbert were branded the GAG Line because they were known for scoring what felt like at least one goal per game. Their best overall season came in 1971-72.
Ratelle led the way with 109 points, which set a Rangers record, after he registered 46 goals and 63 assists. Hadfield also set a Rangers record with 50 goals and added an additional 56 assists for a grand total of 106 points. Gilbert—considered by some to be the greatest player in the franchise’s history—rounded out the trio with 43 goals, 54 assists and 97 points, which were all career highs, save for the assists.
