Man is a legend. Sad day.


Correct me if I'm wrong, his name is engraved the most on the cup as a player?

Yes, 11 Cups.  One of the all time legends of the game.


He personally almost tripled the Islanders dynasty by himself.

This is all very true but you will not see his name on the Stanley Cup 11 times as it exists today. Every 13 years a band is removed from the Cup and the years listed below have now been removed.

The 2017-18 Washington Capitals are to become the first team engraved on a fresh bottom band. The top band, featuring champions from the 1953-54 Detroit Red Wings to the 1964-65 Montreal Canadiens, will come off the Cup to make room.

Sad to see such a legend go. 11 Cups is dang impressive. The timing worked out perfectly for his career to be part of the entire late 50s Canadiens dynasty, the entire 60s dynasty, and the two cups in the early 70s.

Humble brag. My great grandma babysat Henri and Maurice as kids back in laval. Also got a 4th cousin in Gump Worsley, haha.

RIP to a legend.

Oh yeah? Well I used to hang with Gump Jr. (Lorne) Although if you knew him not much of a brag lol
