Remembering Jean Beliveau

Agassiz resident reflects on the life of hockey legend

Hockey legend Jean Beliveau was laid to rest on Wednesday, Dec. 10, 2014. In his career, he took the Montreal Canadiens to 10 Stanley Cups. He even graced the cover of a 1956 Sports Illustrated, a first for a hockey player. He had a grace, style and sportsmanship that you don’t find in today’s hockey players. Beliveau played for the love of the game. Today’s players are only in it for the money.

I remember the 1969 season,when the Canadiens played the Chicago Blackhawks. Jean Beliveau scored four goals in that game, the Canadiens went on to win 6-2.

When Beliveau retired in 1971, it was the end of an era in hockey. But the beginning of another with one goaltender named Ken Dryden, also of the Montreal Canadiens.
