More About Yvon Cournoyer Jerseys
 
Passion for hockey runs deep in the city of Montreal, and stars for the beloved Canadiens are treated like royalty. Over the history of the club the city's favorite sons have included such legends as Maurice Richard, Jean Beliveau and Guy Lafleur. While Yvon Cournoyer's resume might not be quite as impressive as that trio's the man they call "The Roadrunner" certainly ranks up there as one of the most popular Habs of all time.

As is obvious by his nickname Cournoyer's greatest asset was his blinding skating speed. Though relatively diminutive in stature he more than made up for it with his ability to blow by larger, heavier-footed defenseman, streaking in to get an uncontested shot on goal.

Cournoyer's blinding speed was exhilarating for fans, and the wake of his passing pulled them out of their seats to cheer wildly for his latest daring dash. Cournoyer's abilities didn't just stop at his legs. He also had some amazing hands, and 4 times during his career he scored at least 40 goals, including 1971-72 when he lit the lamp a career high 47 times.

As great as his individual achievements were, Cournoyer's greatest legacy is the team success he enjoyed during his career. As a player he won 10 Stanley Cups. Only one other player in NHL history - Henri Richard (11) - has won more. Cournoyer also won the Conn Smythe in 1973 as playoff MVP.

Over his NHL career Cournoyer appeared in 968 NHL regular season games, all with the Habs, racking up 428 goals and 863 points. He also was a star of the 1972 Summit Series where Canada earned a hard-fought 4-3-1 victory against the rival Soviets in the most legendary international hockey series of all time. He sits comfortably ensconced in the Hockey Hall of Fame, and fans both young and old can still be seen sporting a Yvon Cournoyer jersey at home games and on the streets of Montreal.
