MONTREAL - Hospital officials say hockey legend Jean Beliveau is recovering from a mild stroke and his condition is continuing to improve.

The Montreal General Hospital says Beliveau and his family are appreciative of all the support they have received.

They are also asking that their privacy be respected.

The former captain of the Montreal Canadiens was rushed to hospital on Wednesday night.

Beliveau, 78, won 10 Stanley Cups during an 18-year playing career with the Habs.

The Hockey Hall of Famer has had heart problems in the past and is also a cancer survivor.
