Meeting former Habs Greats

Is there any chance of getting a picture taken with Mr. Beliveau during or after games at the Bell Centre, I know he has tickets behind the Habs bench, will the ushers stop you from going down to his seats in between periods to get a picture or an autograph

Nope you can easily do it.
He signs every autograph and takes every request pic before he leaves.
He is A GREAT MAN.

I don't know about a photo, but I got his autograph in person as an 8 year old in 1968. One of my most lucid memories as a child. I got Al Phaneuf's autograph that same year, not as impressionable but the Als were without a doubt bigger in those days than they are today.

I don't know if they'll let you in the section. Especially since he sometimes disappears (possibly into the dressing room) between periods. But if you happen to be seated in his section, he hangs around after the game and talks to fans and lets you take pictures. He'll also talk to you before the game if he's there early. He's really all kindsa gentleman. He's even nice to Leafs fans.
He is A GREAT MAN.

Just a thing, if you do choose to go down there and get his autograph, cherish it. He's a king amongst men.

If there's one Habs great I'd want to meet, it's Beliveau. Never seen him play live either.
