Legendary Montreal Canadiens Player Dead At 91 

Jean-Guy Talbot, one of the greatest players in NHL history, died this week. He was 91 years old.  

Talbot played defense in professional hockey from 1952 to 1971, contributing significantly to the Canadiens' two decades of supremacy in the 1950s and 1960s. He was a seven-time Stanley Cup winner and six-time NHL All-Star.  

"The Canadiens are heartbroken to learn of Jean-Guy Talbot's demise. Our thoughts and heartfelt condolences go out to the Talbot family during this difficult time," the team stated.  

Talbot would end his career with the St. Louis Blues, Detroit Red Wings, and Buffalo Sabres.   

He appeared in 1,056 career games, scoring 43 goals and providing 242 assists.  

He quickly began a coaching career, taking over as head coach of the Blues in 1972 and leading them to the league quarter-finals in his first season.   

He signed after the next season and then served as the New York Rangers' head coach in 1977-78.  

In addition to coaching in the NHL, Talbot has worked in the Central Hockey League, Western Hockey League, and World Hockey Association.   After leaving from coaching after the 1978 season, he moved back to his hometown of Quebec and worked in a brewery.
