NHL toasts Jean Beliveau
Thursday night at the NHL Awards in Las Vegas, the Habs' legendary No. 4 became the second-ever winner of the league's new lifetime achievement award, joining his longtime rival and good friend, Gordie Howe who earned the honor in 2008.
The 78-year-old Beliveau received a warm ovation on his way to the podium at the Palms Hotel.
"Thank you very much," said a visibly moved Beliveau. "This is a night I won't ever forget."
