Didn't Selke try to force Beliveau to sign the C-form? They still pretty much forced Beliveau to play with the Habs.
They did not force him.

The story is much cuter.

The Canadiens had his professional rights.

Jean played in a semi pro league after his junior.

The Canadiens bought the entire league and turned it into a pro league.

Et voilą, Jean had to play for the Canadiens.
