Related Topics: Montreal Canadiens

The Montreal Canadiens have entered the quietest time on the calendar. While there is little to look forward to in the month of August, we decided to take a look back at some of the greatest players in franchise history. We start our site countdown of the five best goaltenders in Canadiens history with our fifth-ranked goalie, Georges Vezina.

A pioneer for the next generation of goalies, George Vezina stood just five-foot-six, but he played much bigger. He led the league in goals/against average in seven of his 16 seasons and won two Stanley Cup championships, one before and one after the NHA-NHL merger.
