Jean Béliveau 1931-2014
The Hockey Hall of Fame and its members are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Honoured Member Jean Béliveau.
Béliveau was revered as the quintessential class hockey player. He was a natural leader, both on and off the ice, and excelled at all facets of the game. Nicknamed "Le Gros Bill" after a popular French song of the day, Jean played on an incredible 10 Stanley Cup-winning teams as a member of the Montreal Canadiens, his sole NHL team.
He was an NHL All-Star 10 times and retired as the Canadiens all-time leading scorer as well as the league's top all-time playoff scorer.
Over his illustrious career, from 1950 and 1971, Béliveau played 1,125 regular season games, recording 507 goals, 712 assists and 1,219 points. He served as captain of the Canadiens for 10 seasons and would remain with the club in an ambassadorial role until his death on December 2, 2014.
The Hockey Hall of Fame would like to extend sincere condolences to Mr. Béliveau's family.

Limited-time Exhibit "Hockey Marching As To War"
The Hockey Hall of Fame in partnership with Library and Archives Canada is thrilled to announce the opening of a limited-time exhibit on hockey and the First World War to commemorate the centennial anniversary of the start of the war.
The exhibit highlights the impact of the First World War on hockey players through artifacts, graphics, and interactive stations. Among the items on display are digital Canadian Expeditionary Forces files and attestation papers of over 30 Hockey Hall of Fame inductees, as well as original Canadian Expeditionary Forces files for three inductees: Conn Smythe, Frank McGee and Frank Fredrickson.
"LAC is committed to commemorating Canada's contribution to the First World War, and this exhibit provides an excellent opportunity to make available Canada's rich documentary heritage in a different setting. It also illustrates the different ways Canadians can access their history, by way of Canada's favourite sport. This partnership signals LAC's renewed emphasis to make accessible and available documentary heritage to all Canadians, everywhere." Dr. Guy Berthiaume - Librarian and Archivist of Canada
"It's been 100 years since the start of the Great War. Many Canadians from across this great land gave the ultimate sacrifice, and hockey players were no different. Partnering with Library and Archives Canada, the Hockey Hall of Fame pays tribute to all of those involved in the great game of hockey and who also served their country with this special exhibit on hockey during wartime." Phil Pritchard - Hockey Hall of Fame Vice President and Curator.
