The Ramblers were formerly known as the Philadelphia Arrows from 1927 to 1935 and played in the Canadian-American Hockey League.
History[edit | edit source]
The team changed named to the Ramblers for the 1935–36 season. The Canadian American Hockey League merged into the International-American Hockey League in 1936, where the Ramblers competed for another four seasons, before that league became known as the modern-day American Hockey League.
From 1935 through 1941 the team was the primary minor league affiliate of the New York Rangers and many future and aging Ranger stars (such as Bert Gardiner and Larry Molyneux) played for the Ramblers. The Rangers ended the agreement after the 1940–41 season. The team changed its name to the Philadelphia Rockets for the 1941–42 season, which turned out to be their final season.
A notable former member of the 1935–41 Ramblers was Bryan Hextall, Sr., grandfather of future Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Ron Hextall.
