A combination of speed and style made Guy Lafleur the most exciting player on the Montréal Canadiens teams of the mid- to late-seventies, with six consecutive 50-goal seasons. He joined the Canadiens in 1971-72 and blossomed in the 1974-75 season where he began surpassing records and appeared in the first of his six All-Star games. Lafleur retired in 1991 with 560 goals, five Stanley cups and a trophy awarded in his name to the playoff MVP in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
