Adam Scott Graves was born April 12, 1968.

Graves won a Stanley Cup with the Edmonton Oilers, but spent much of his 17-year career with the New York Rangers. He scored 329 goals and dished out 287 assists in his career.

A winger with an attractive blend of power, grit and skill, Graves signed with the Rangers in 1991 and it didn't take long for him to contribute. He score a then-franchise-record 52 goals to lead the Rangers to the 1994 Stanley Cup. The Rangers have retired his No. 9.

Graves, known as one of the classiest players in NHL history, finished his career after two seasons with the San Jose Sharks in 2003.
