He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother



Another Richard brother almost joined Maurice and Henri on the Habs in the 1950’s. Unfortunately, he didn’t have what it takes, but at least he got a lot farther than you and me.

Claude had pretty well everything you need to play in the NHL except he wasn’t a good skater. He had a good shot. Then, there were only six teams. If it had been the seventies, he might have made the NHL,” shrugs Henri.

This isn’t a complete list by any means, but here’s some other brothers who’ve made the NHL: 

The Sutter’s, of course.

Reg, Doug, and Max Bentley

Eric, Marc, and Jordan Staal

Charlie, Lionel, and Roy Conacher

Bill, Bun, and Bud Cook

Barclay, Bob, and Bill Plager

Wally and Beaver Cleaver

Orville and Wilbur Wright

Duane and Gregg Allman

Groucho, Harpo, Chico, Gummo, and Zeppo Marx

  1. Moey, thanks for that. That’s more along the lines of what I wanted to hear. I think Michael Farber is a bit full of himself.

  2. Marcel – Jean Pronovost and brother Claude who was a goalie and played for The Habs….

  3. Hi Dennis, You forgot the Esposito lads, Tony and Phil. Oh, wait, I guess they don’t count since Phil worked for the enemy.

    How about the Sedin brothers, Ruutus and Kaberles?

  4. I only mentioned a few. There’s also the Righteous Brothers and Everly Brothers.
