John Davidson

John Davidson (born February 27, 1953 in Ottawa, Ontario) is the president of the St. Louis Blues and a former goaltender for the St. Louis Blues (1973-75) and New York Rangers (1975-83) of the National Hockey League. Growing up in western Canada, he played left wing until age 16, when he was moved to goaltender. Drafted fifth overall in 1973, he became the first goalie in NHL history to jump directly from major junior to the NHL. While his hockey career was fraught with many significant injuries, he is perhaps best remembered (as a player) for leading the Rangers to the 1979 Stanley Cup Finals on an injured left knee.
