Career achievements[edit]

Hockey Hall of Fame[edit]

In the Hockey Hall of Fame, the Canadiens boast the most enshrined Hall-of-Famers with 44. All of their inductees are from Canada with the exception of former Defenceman Joe Hall, who was from the United Kingdom. 36 of these players are from three separate notable dynasties: twelve from 1955–1960, eleven from 1964–1969 and thirteen from 1975–1979. Howie Morenz and Georges Vezina were the first Canadiens given the honor in 1945, while Doug Gilmour was the most recent inductee in 2011.

On July 9, 2013, Chris Chelios was announced among the class of 2013 to be inducted on November 11, bringing the Canadiens' total number of players inducted to 45. Chelios will become the first American-born Canadien to enter the Hall upon his induction.

Lester Patrick Trophy[edit]

The Lester Patrick Trophy is given to "Personnel who provide outstanding service to hockey in the United States." While presented by the National Hockey League, as well as USA Hockey, it is considered a non-NHL trophy because it may be awarded to players, coaches, officials, and other personnel outside the NHL.
