The NHL honored Montreal Canadiens great Jean Béliveau by purchasing a full-page ad in Thursday's Globe and Mail, a nationally-distributed Canadian newspaper.
Béliveau played for the Canadiens from 1950 to 1971. At the time of his retirement he was the franchise's all-time points leader. He was a 13-time All-Star and won the Hart Trophy, the NHL's MVP award, twice. He won ten Stanley Cups as a player and seven more as a Canadiens vice president.
