Dave Maloney, a former New York Rangers captain and defenseman, has been working in the Rangers radio booth with play-by-play partner Kenny Albert since the 2005-06 season. Maloney also serves as an analyst on MSG Networks’ weekly comprehensive hockey show “HOCKEY NIGHT LIVE.”
During the 1984-85 season, his last year in the NHL, Maloney took his first step into broadcasting by joining the Rangers radio crew while recovering from an injury. He officially traded in his skates for a microphone following the season and landed several broadcasting jobs. He has worked for CTV in Canada, the Minnesota North Stars, WFAN New York and was a studio analyst on “Fox NHL Saturday” from 1995-98. Before joining MSG Networks full-time in 2005, Maloney made the occasional appearance on the network for Rangers telecasts.
Maloney spent 11 seasons in the NHL and all but 52 games of his career with the New York Rangers, the team that drafted him with the 14th pick in the 1974 NHL Amateur Draft. At the age of 18, Maloney became the youngest player in Rangers history when he played his first game on December 18, 1974. He was also the youngest player to be named captain, the 17th in Rangers history, when he was given the honor in 1978. Over the course of his NHL career Maloney amassed 71 goals and had 246 assists for 371 total points.
Maloney lives in Old Greenwich, CT and has three children.
