  • Born in 1951 in Thurso, Quebec

The native of Thurso, Quebec, arrived in Montreal with unthinkable pressure bearing down on him. His two brilliant junior seasons had set impossibly high expectations, and fans viewed him as the next great, can’t-miss French-Canadian star.

Between 1971 and 1991, Guy Lafleur played for the Montreal Canadiens, New York Rangers and Quebec Nordiques in an NHL career spanning 17 seasons.

  Lafleur won five Stanley Cup championships with the Canadiens.
