Best Wishes to Jean Beliveau

From the NHL:

Hall of Famer and longtime Montreal Canadiens team ambassador Jean Beliveau is scheduled to undergo a preventive surgical procedure next week to repair abdominal aneurysms. The team said the procedure, known as endovascular surgery, will be performed using the most recent techniques, which are minimally invasive.

Beliveau, whose general state of health is very good, according to the team, will need a few months to fully recover from the surgical intervention.

“We are pleased that Mr. Beliveau is under the good care of head team physician David Mulder. On behalf of all of our fans, players and the entire Montreal Canadiens family, I would like to wish Mr. Beliveau a prompt and complete recovery,” owner and CEO Geoff Molson said in a statement.

The hockey legend turns 80 years old later this summer.
