He appears to have played for the Habs for 3yrs, 55 to 58, the only player (along with Ken Morrow) to have won an International Championship in 1958 with the Whitby Dunlops and then a Stanley Cup playing for the Canadiens. He retired thereafter, though he's listed as playing the 58/59 season for Ottawa-Hull. He wouldve been in his mid to late 20's, entering his peak years for that era.
Strange he just up & retired.
I also spotted a blurb about Punch Imlach in Quebec City, threatening to move the Aces if they didnt get a better Lease deal with the city for the Colisee'. The more things change, the more they stay the same it seems...
Took a long term position with Molson's. Behind Beliveau, H.Richard, Backstrom, Goyette with the Canadiens. Did not want to go to an American team.
