The traditional answer is Vic Lynn. Although historically there
hasn't been any source saying he played for the Rangers (team #6), I
think that Total Hockey came out and pegged him with 1 game for NYR
in 42-43, while he was a member of the NY Rovers.
I question whether someone "tried too hard" to find that game, since
it would make him the only player to play for all 6 Original Six
