On October 9, 1971, just months after witnessing the retirement of their long-time captain, the Canadiens bestowed the ultimate honor on Jean Beliveau, raising his famed No. 4 jersey to the Forum rafters. The epitome of class and grace, the 10-time Stanley Cup Champion will forever be regarded as one of hockey’s pre-eminent ambassadors. This day also marked Guy Lafleur’s first ever game in the NHL. “Flower” would go on to pick up an assist as the Canadiens tied the Rangers 4-4.
