On today’s episode we pay tribute to the late Mr Jean Beliveau. He played in the National Hockey League from 1952 – 1971, all of which were played for the Montreal Canadiens. He played in 1125 games in the NHL, where he amassed 507 goals and 712 assists for a total of 1219 points.
To my knowledge, no name appears on the Stanley Cup more often than Mr Jean Beliveau–18, 10 as a player and 8 as an executive for the Montreal Canadiens. He won 5 of those Stanley Cups on Montreal’s run of 5 straight. He was also the team’s captain from 1961-1971.
His reputation as a leader both on the ice and off the ice, is shared by our guest’s today as they pay tribute to one of the greatest men that the game of hockey has ever seen.
