John Davidson stepped behind a lectern emblazoned with the Rangers logo on Wednesday and got straight to the point.
“Dreams do come true,” he said at Madison Square Garden, appearing to become a bit misty-eyed after he was introduced as the Rangers’ new president about 40 years to the day after leading the team to the Stanley Cup finals as a goaltender.
“It’s no secret that New York has always been a … held a very special place in my heart,” he added, with his wife and one of their two daughters in the audience.
Davidson, 66, is replacing the retiring Glen Sather, who has been at the helm since June 2000.
Hiring Davidson is a logical move for the youthful Rangers, who missed the playoffs for the second straight season as they work through a dramatic rebuild that began in February 2018.
Only four players remain from their Cup finals run in 2014. The team has been accumulating young talent and has two first-round picks, including the second over all, and two second-round picks in next month’s draft.
“I want to continue what’s been started here,” Davidson said. “That’s to build the Rangers to become perennial Stanley Cup contenders. They are doing it the right way.”

Davidson brings the pedigree of a hockey life that has included most every layer of N.H.L. experience, from player to Hall of Fame broadcaster to team executive. He played two seasons with St. Louis before spending parts of eight seasons with the Rangers, his career cut short because of knee injuries.
The magical 1979 playoff run, during which the underdog Rangers upset the Islanders in six games in the semifinals before losing in the Cup finals in five games to the Canadiens, cemented Davidson’s status in the team’s history.
“We got on a roll with a bunch of young players, and that run was significant because of the feeling of what New York gave back to us,” he said. “I used to wake up in the morning up in Westchester and there would be gifts on the doorstep — from people I didn’t even know.”
After his playing career ended in 1983, Davidson moved to the MSG television booth, where he would be paired with Sam Rosen. Their tenure included the spring of 1994, when the Rangers won the Stanley Cup after 54 years of frustration. Davidson’s “Oh baby” exclamations became as well known as Rosen’s “It’s a power-play goal” refrain.
“He’s the right man for the organization right now,” Rosen said of Davidson.
Davidson left television in 2006 to take over as president of the St. Louis Blues for six years before assuming the same role with the Columbus Blue Jackets, where he was until last week. Columbus, a struggling young franchise when Davidson got there, made the playoffs in four of his six seasons.
“This is the only organization I would ever have left Columbus for,” Davidson said.
He was quick to assert that there is plenty of work ahead in his new role. Primarily, there is planning for next month’s draft and getting to know his players. That will include a conversation with Henrik Lundqvist, the team’s 37-year-old franchise goaltender, who has two years left on his contract but is coming off the worst season of his 14-year N.H.L. career.
“He’s a proud, proud guy and very successful at what he does,” Davidson said. “I can hardly wait to chat with him.”
Davidson also said he was looking forward to working with General Manager Jeff Gorton and Coach David Quinn, the former coach at Boston University, who had a 32-36-14 record in his rookie season behind the Rangers’ bench.
“There are no quick fixes,” Davidson said. “It’s hard work, it’s patience and it’s having the proper resolve.”
Asked if he would feel instant pressure to generate results under the klieg lights of New York, Davidson said, “I have no problems with that.”
“If you want to do it right and do it well, there’s always pressure,” he added. “Obviously, the sooner you win the better. That’s the goal. But you have to do it the right way. I’ll assess everything.”
Besides, the memories of the finals loss in 1979 are still fresh.
“He didn’t finish it then,” Davidson’s wife, Diana, said. “That’s the reason he wanted to come back and finish this. You were ‘this far’ from the Cup.”B:
