Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jack Lancien
Defenceman Jack Lancien played parts of four seasons with the New York Rangers in the 40s and 50s. He was a fine playmaker who could cover people in his own end in a career spent mostly in the minors and senior leagues.

Born in Regina, Saskatchewan, Lancien played junior with the hometown Pats. In 1946-47 he saw in action in one game for the Rangers but otherwise took a regular turn on the New York Rovers' blueline in the EHL. The next year he was recalled for a couple of playoff games then dressed for 43 contests in 1949-50.

After playing 19 games in 1950-51, Lancien was relegated to the minors where he remained until he retired in 1961. Along the way his best years came in the WHL with the Vancouver Canucks and the senior Spokane Flyers of the WIHL.
