Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Dave Stubbs of Hockey Inside/Out,
Very sad news out of the Canadiens family this Saturday morning: former captain Émile (Butch) Bouchard, a member of the Habs from 1941-56, died early this morning at Longueuil in South Shore Montreal, surrounded by his family. Big Butch was 92.
Bouchard captained the Canadiens from 1948-56, following goaler Bill Durnan with the C and succeeded by Maurice (Rocket) Richard. The 1966 Hall of Fame-inductee was a strapping stay-at-home defenceman who could get the job done with punishing force. He won the Stanley Cup four times with the Habs.
