From the Publisher
When most sports fans hear the stat 3,000, they immediately turn to baseball. But for those fans whose breath comes out in frosty puffs, and who bleed ice and snow, 3,000 can only mean one thing-the glory of Montreal Canadiens hockey. The "Original One" of the "Original Six," the Montreal Canadiens hockey team is practically synonymous with superlative: The most Stanley Cup championship victories, with 24? The Montreal Canadiens. The highest number of regular-season wins? The Montreal Canadiens. The oldest active franchise in the NHL? The Montreal Canadiens.
Now the hundred-plus years of Canadiens triumphs, tragedies, and times like no other are captured in Robert Lefebvre''sTales from the Montreal Canadiens Locker Room. In this unique compendium, Lefebvre brings to life both the history and the anecdotes of this incredible franchise. Stories of Maurice "Rocket" Richard''s incredible skills on the ice are paired side by side with locker room yarns and off-the-ice tales of Jean Beliveau, Dickie Moore, Serge Savard, Guy Lapointe, Patrick Roy, and more. With humor, wit, and a lot of adrenaline, Robert Lefebvre has compiled a collection of Montreal Canadiens stories sure to please any hockey fan.
About the Author
A life-long fan of the history of hockey, Lefebvre inherited his passion for Canadiens'' lore through his father''s handed down tales of the Habs'' Stanley Cup triumphs. Robert''s zest for knowledge of the game was all-encompassing. Prior to sharing his enthusiasm for the sport with readers, he played, coached, scouted and managed leagues at the youth hockey level in his hometown. Later, as a hockey parent, an interest in documenting his daughters'' hockey travels for a local paper soon developed into larger writing pursuits. By 2006, he had founded the popular Eyes On The Prize website; a chronicling of the Canadiens past, present and future. A member of the Society for International Hockey Research, Lefebvre worked with the Canadiens in 2009 on several centennial-related projects. He presently resides in Cornwall, Ontario with his wife and two daughters, where he patiently awaits his favorite team''s 25th Stanley Cup.
