Blake Retires

Geoffrion

Montreal’s Blake Geoffrion has announced his retirement after suffering a fractured skull last November in a game against the Syracuse Crunch when he was with the Hamilton Bulldogs.

Blake had come to the Canadiens in a deal that sent Hal Gill to the Nashville Predators.

It’s very sad, and hopefully he’ll will have a wonderful life from here on in. We wish him all the best.

Luci and I were at the Habs-Canucks game in Vancouver last year and were only about twenty feet from him when he netted his very first goal for the Canadiens.

  1. Man that’s tough. It would be nice if the team could offer him some kind of position, scouting or something. Remember some years back a young player, Trent Cleary?, for the habs had to retire after getting hit in the throat with a puck and the team hired him to scout out west where he was from. I always thought that was a classy gesture.

  2. D-John, yes, Trent McCleary. That was a terrible injury for sure. You’re absolutely right, it would be nice if the club offers Blake a job. Hopefully that’s what they’ll do.
