#64: Glen Harmon
Glen Harmon was claimed by the Montreal Canadiens during a tumultuous time in the team’s history.
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.
