LW Jean-Guy Gendron



Why:
- 10th in goals 1959-60
- Captain of Quebec Nordiques 1972 - 1974
- Legends of Hockey:
Quote:
He was a fine goal scorer who embraced defensive responsibilities if that kept him in the line up. The hard working forward also toiled in the WHA and was a solid AHL competitor. Gendron was given more offensive responsibilities in Beantown and set a career high with 24 goals in 1959-60 while playing with Jerry Toppazzini and Charlie Burns. In 1962 Gendron returned to Boston for a couple of years before he was relegated to the AHL. He returned to the NHL in 1967 after his Quebec Aces club was purchased by the expansion Philadelphia Flyers. Gendron provided leadership and three straight 20-goal performances for his new club before joining the Quebec Nordiques of the newly founded WHA in 1972-73. He played a checking role for two year in the provincial capital before retiring in 1974.
Why not:
- Only 383 points in 863 games.
