Legendary hockey player Jean Beliveau passed away on Dec. 2 at the age of 83. As Canadiens president Geoff Molson said, he “was a great leader, a gentleman and arguably the greatest ambassador our game has ever known.”

Hall of Fame forward Beliveau meant a great deal to the game of hockey, but his impact was most profound in Montreal where he played in 1,125 games over the span of two decades. During his tenure he won the Stanley Cup with the Canadiens an incredible 10 times.

On Tuesday night, the Canadiens paid tribute to him at the Bell Centre. You can watch that below:
