Ryan Callahan serves as the Rangers' captain nowadays, and by donning the "C," he joins a very elite group. Prior to Callahan, it was Chris Drury who held the role, starting in 2008.

Here’s a column I wrote for The Journal News and LoHud.com yesterday:
The last time the Rangers played a hockey game with somebody other than Ryan Callahan as their captain, Callahan was on crutches.
He was on crutches because, in the biggest game of 2010-11, Game 80 of 82, with the Rangers barely clinging to a playoff spot, they came back from...
