Mr. Beliveau was truly one of the greatest Legends the game has ever seen!
Winning championships and individual awards can make an athlete great. How they interact with their teammates, friends and fans can make an athlete a legend. Jean Beliveau is at the front of the line when it comes to legendary athletes - from any sport!
When you stop to consider for a moment, that Mr. Beliveau retired after the 1970-71 season, he was still one of the most respected and loved players the game has ever seen when he passed away. A truly remarkable man - the hockey world has indeed lost a Legend.
Was looking online for a picture to share and found his 500th goal and one of my favorites found at the Windsor Star's website, relaxing with his wife of 61 years, Elise Beliveau.
RIP Mr. Beliveau
