It is by having his jersey retired that goaltending great Ken Dryden says he will connect to other legendary players in the Montreal Canadiens’ history.
Dryden’s No. 29 is to be raised to the Bell Centre ceiling in a ceremony before the Canadiens game against the Ottawa Senators Monday night.
“The greatest were the stars you saw when you were nine or 10 years old,” Dryden said Sunday. “They looked like they could skate and shoot 100 miles per hour.
“The people with their names on the banners here like (Jacques) Plante and (Doug) Harvey were of a different dimension. You never connect yourself to that.”
