#66: Pierre Mondou

Pierre Mondou played his entire NHL career with the Montreal Canadiens, and would have played a few more seasons if it wasn’t for a serious injury.

Mondou was selected in the first round by the Habs in 1975. A few years later, he was a rookie on the Canadiens’ 1978 Stanley Cup winning team. He scored 10 points in 15 games that year.

The next season, the Habs repeated their success, earning Mondou two Stanley Cups in his first two seasons.

He scored at least 29 goals in four of the next five seasons, and was seen as an offensive leader on the team.

He retired in 1985 after taking a high-stick in the eye from Ulf Samuelsson.
