#39: Doug Risebrough
Doug Risebrough had an almost-impossible task when he was first called up to the Montreal Canadiens: replace Henri Richard.
Richard suffered a career-ended ankle injury, and the Habs needed a new centre to fill in. Risebrough was that player.
He spent eight seasons with the Canadiens, winning four Stanley Cups.
An agitator on the ice, Risebrough was also a leader (becoming a co-captain when playing with the Calgary Flames).
He scored a career-high 60 points with the Habs in 1976-77.
Risebrough would go on to become a general manager with the Flames and the Minnesota Wild.
