Jean Beliveau Signed Framed Montreal Canadiens Carrying the Cup Photo
Jean Beliveau was one of the most iconic players in the history of the Montreal Canadiens and the National Hockey League (NHL).
Beliveau was the fourth player in NHL history to score 500 goals (behind Maurice Richard, Gordie Howe, and Bobby Hull) and the second to amass 1,000 points (behind Howe). His 17 Stanley Cup wins – 10 as a player and 7 as a team executive – is an unequalled NHL record.
In 1961, Jean Beliveau was elected captain of the Montreal Canadiens by his peers and proudly wore the “C” for the next 10 seasons, which remains the longest tenure of any captain in club’s history. Under Beliveau’s leadership the Montreal Canadiens added five more Stanley Cups to their trophy case. The 1970-71 campaign was Beliveau’s final season. The 39-year-old broke the 20-goal barrier for the 13th time and led the team in regular season scoring. Beliveau added 22 postseason points, ending his playing days in the most fitting manner possible, sipping champagne from the Stanley Cup for the 10th time.
Over the course of 1,125 regular-season NHL games, Beliveau scored 507 goals and accumulated 1,219 points. On October 4, 1971, Beliveau’s trademark No. 4 was retired and raised to the rafters of the Montreal Forum. When he hung up his skates, Beliveau was the Canadiens’ all-time leader in virtually every offensive category and a 10-time NHL all-star. After his retirement as a player, Beliveau became a vice president of the Canadiens and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1972 without the usual three-year waiting period. Aside from his VP duties, Beliveau devoted most of his energies towards helping the less fortunate, making public appearances, and promoting charitable causes. In 2014, Jean Beliveau passed away at the age of 83.
