That's a good question. My instinct tells me that it must have been retired, but I can't think of who has the honour. I am going to guess: Lucien Deblois.

And now I checked. I was wrong. (Deblois was 27.) Apparently, the last player to wear 13 for the Habs was Billy Boucher, in 1921-22. Oddly enough, one of the only other two players to have ever worn 13 for the Habs also wore it in that same season.
