In the early 1940s, the Canadiens were the worst team in the league, and almost folded after the 1939-40 season. But a new coach and general manager helped change all that.

One of the smartest moves they did were to bring in Glen Harmon.

He was a calming influence on the back end, and helped the team transform into a successful franchise.

He played a total of eight seasons for the Habs, helping the team win two Stanley Cups.

He also played in two all-star games near the end of his career.

In 2008, he was elected to the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame.
