During that first championship run, Roy was just 20 years old and became the youngest player ever to win the Conn Smythe Trophy as Playoff MVP. Roy ranks second on the franchise’s all-time games played list among goaltenders with 551 career regular-season appearances between the pipes and sits second with 289 wins and 31,918 minutes played.

He has the six best offensive seasons in Montreal Canadien’s history ranging from 117 to 136 points.  He won two Hart Trophies as the league’s MVP, three Art Ross Trophies as the league-leading scorer, and one Conn Smythe Trophy as the MVP.

1) Maurice Richard

The Rocket was the first to score 50 goals in a season, and he did it in fifty games. He was the first to score 500 goals in a career. His 544 goals record in a career was equivalent to Ruth’s 714 home runs until he was passed in 1963 by Gordie Howe. Richard was basically the babe Ruth of hockey.
