brothers in blue

Brothers Act: The New York Rangers heralded the rise of new brotherly duo in the fall of 1943 when 18-year-old left winger Billy Warwick (on the right) joined his brother Grant, a right winger, three years older, on the roster. For a team that had had multiple Cooks, Patricks, and Colvilles star for them, the prospect was an exciting one. Born in Regina, Saskatchewan, on a Monday of today’s date in 1924, Billy Warwick only lasted 14 games in the NHL, going on to a long and distinguished minor-league and international career. All three of his NHL goals were scored this month in ’43, with the first coming on November 7 in New York when he beat Benny Grant in the Toronto goal during a 7-4 Leaf win.
