“LE GROS BILL” – Jean Bliveau Canadian hockey icon


“LE GROS BILL” – yesterday an icon of hockey and an icon of Canada passed away at the age of 83. The great Jean Béliveau, he opitimized what a sportsman and a leader should be, and could be, and leaves a legacy of inspiration for the next generation. I found these photo’s on the web, the cigar photo originally taken for LIFE magazine, not sure the photographer for the other one.

To me these photos stand apart from all the iconic hockey photos, as they show the man behind the hockey legend. His autobiography is available here: http://www.amazon.com/My-Life-Hockey-Jean-Beliveau/dp/1553651499See More
