This month's "Ask the Alumni" guest at The Hockey Writers is four-time Stanley Cup Champion Claude Lemieux.

While Claude’s legendary career may have started quietly with one goal in his first ten NHL games, once the 1986 playoffs began, he and a young goaltender name Roy played integral roles in the run to the 23rd Stanley Cup in the storied history of the Montreal Canadiens. The 20 playoff games in ‘86 foretold his future playoff success, as he scored 10 goals and added 6 assists that year. For the young man from Buckingham, Quebec, winning a Stanley Cup with the Canadiens was a dream come true.

He went on to play 1,215 regular season games with six different teams, scoring 379 goals and 789 points. His 80 career playoff goals ranks ninth on the NHL's all-time list and his 19 game-winning playoff goals are only five goals behind The Great One himself, Wayne Gretzky.
