Yvan Cournoyer

Yvan Cournoyer (b. November 22, 1943) was a hockey player in the NHL who played for the Montreal Canadiens from 1963 to 1979.

In 16 seasons of play, Cournoyer established himself as one of the premier forwards in the NHL, scoring 428 goals and 435 assists in 968 games. Perhaps the finest moment in his career came in the playoffs in 1973, where he scored 15 goals in 17 games, and was the recipient of the Conn Smythe Trophy, which is awarded to the MVP of the NHL's playoffs at their conclusion. Cournoyer played in six All-Star Games, and was on ten Stanley Cup-winning teams.

In the 1996-1997 season, Cournoyer was an assistant coach for the Canadiens.
