Top 100 Habs: #78

#78: Dollard St. Laurent

Dollard St. Laurent spent eight seasons with the Montreal Canadiens, helping them win four Stanley Cups in that time.

No one would ever convince St. Laurent as being an offensive player (he never scored more than four goals in a season), but he was one of the strongest defensive defenceman the team has ever seen. His defensive play allowed him to be selected to five all-star teams.

The Quebec native was traded only twice in his career, both times for cash. After being traded to Chicago, he helped the Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup in 1961, the last one they have won.

His final year of hockey was spent in the AHL. He wanted to go back to the NHL, but a broken leg eliminated the chances of that.
