Playing career

Always a popular player during his career, Canadiens fans would chant "Guy, Guy, Guy!" when he touched the puck. As a small boy, Guy Lafleur's love of hockey was such that he would sleep in his hockey outfit then be up at the crack of dawn to race to the locked skating rink where he found a way inside to practice. As an adult, his enthusiasm never waned, and he would be in his hockey uniform, skates tied tight, sweater on and a stick in hand at 4 o'clock in the afternoon for an 8 o'clock game. During his playing career, the press affectionately dubbed him "The Flower", which is a literal translation from "la fleur" in French. While "The Flower" is not a nickname usually associated with a hockey player, it was one spoken in admiration, not scorn.


In his teens, Lafleur gained considerable recognition for his play as a member of the Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, where he led his team to the Memorial Cup in 1971, scoring an amazing 130 regular-season goals. At the time, Lafleur idolized Jean Beliveau and Bobby Orr. The Quebec Remparts are a major junior hockey team of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. ...

Montreal Canadiens' astute General Manager, Sam Pollock was keen to find a way to ensure Lafleur wound up in a Montreal uniform and made a trade with the California Golden Seals to obtain their first round draft pick. Drafted No.1 overall, Lafleur went on to play right wing in the National Hockey League from 1971-72 through the 1984-85 season.

At first, Lafleur struggled to live up to expectations in the league but by 1975, he had developed his trademark smooth skating style and scoring touch. He was a cornerstone of five Stanley Cup championship teams, scored a Canadiens franchise record 1,246 points (518 goals and 728 assists), and led the NHL in scoring in 1976, 1977, and 1978 (Art Ross Trophy).

After Montreal won the Stanley Cup in 1978, he borrowed it for the weekend without telling anyone to show his friends back home in Thurso where he set it out on his front lawn for all his neighbors to see.


While driving home on March 24, 1980, Lafleur fell asleep at the wheel of his sports car and crashed into a highway fence. He was nearly decapitated when a metal post pierced the windshield missing his head by inches while tearing off part of his ear.


He became the first player in NHL history to score at least 50 goals and 100 points in six consecutive seasons. In some regards, Lafleur was the predecessor to the rise of hockey superstar Wayne Gretzky during the 1980s and 1990s. Just as importantly, he played with a thrilling style that marked him out as the most exciting professional hockey player of his era and, arguably, of all time.

With Scotty Bowman, Ken Dryden, Jacques Lemaire, and several other key players retiring after the conclusion of the 1979 season, the Canadiens' dynasty came to an end, losing in the second round of the 1980 playoffs to the Minnesota North Stars in seven games. Injuries shortened Lafleur's 1980-1981 season and his production dropped significantly (during the previous six seasons, Lafleur had hit or exceeded 100 points and 50 goals). In the following seasons, he was being overshadowed by Mike Bossy and Wayne Gretzky. During the 1984-1985 season, having gone much of the season without being able to score a goal, he decided to retire.

After being inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame, Lafleur returned to the NHL briefly from 1988-89 through 1990-91 with the New York Rangers and the Quebec Nordiques (now Colorado Avalanche). Lafleur remained one of the few players that did not wear protective helmets. During his first game back in the Montreal Forum, he scored twice against Patrick Roy during the Rangers' 7-5 loss to the Canadiens. Although his high-scoring days were well behind him, his stint with the Rangers was moderately successful and he helped the team to first place in the Patrick Division until being knocked out by a knee injury. Lafleur then followed dismissed Rangers head coach and close friend Michel Bergeron to the Nordiques for his final seasons.
