The loss of another great one. It saddens me to read this. As a teen, my mom took me to his steakhouse in Montreal (in the 70s...not sure if it still exist). I was so impressed to be there and see him.

I still remember when O'Byrne gave him his jersey ... he looked so happy and proud.

RIP Butch

Our team that's currently sitting with the spirit in the sky just got a great d-man.

From the official website of the Hockey Hall Of Fame:

Although there have been many excellent players through the pantheon of the Montreal Canadiens' franchise, few emboldened the inspiration written on the dressing room walls of the Montreal Forum as appropriately as 'Butch' Bouchard:

'To you from failing hands we throw the torch; be yours to hold it high.'



'Nos bras meurtris vous tendent le flambeau, à vous toujours de le porter bien haut.'


Repose en paix, Butch.

RIP Mr. Bouchard

It's sad to see a Legend like him leave us

Not too many 40's players are still alive : Lach, Plamondon, Gravelle, Riopelle, Fillion, Robertson, Dussault, Mahaffy...

RIP Butch.

Too bad you had the watch the once-mighty Canadiens hid the skids.

92 is an amazing life.

Your retirement ceremony during the centennial game was a highlight moment in Habs history.

I cried like a baby during his jersey retirement. He was so proud...

I'm glad Butch was able to see his number 3 go up in the rafters. I met his son Pierre a few years ago....very nice man. RIP Emile.
