Canadiens' Ruel was a teacher unlike any other

Monday, 02.09.2015 / 2:55 PM / News

Serge Touchette  - Special to NHL.com

He had one eye, but few hockey men could see as far, or as clearly, when it came to unearthing new talent.

The Montreal Canadiens lost a rare bird, an unsung hero, Monday when Claude Ruel died at the age of 76.

Ruel, who went blind in one eye when he was hit by a puck playing junior hockey in 1958, wore many hats in the Canadiens organization. He was a scout, a coach, a scout again, and a coach again. But most importantly, Ruel played a significant role in developing the best young players in the Canadiens organization in the 1970s and 1980s. He was a teacher of the highest order, the likes of which rarely has been seen.

Canadiens Cup champion coach Ruel dies at 76

Monday, 02.09.2015 / 12:29 PM / News

NHL.com

Claude Ruel, who was part of seven Stanley Cup championships with the Montreal Canadiens, died Monday at age 76.

"It's with sadness that we learned the passing of Claude Ruel, a great builder in our franchise history," Canadiens owner Geoff Molson wrote on his verified Twitter account. "My condolences to the Ruel family."

Ruel was the Canadiens' director of scouting when he was elevated to coach for the 1968-69 season, replacing Toe Blake. He guided the Canadiens to the best record in the League with 103 points. They swept the New York Rangers in the quarterfinals and beat the Boston Bruins in six games in the semifinals. In the Cup Final the Canadiens swept the St. Louis Blues.

The Canadiens missed the playoffs the following season, and he resigned 23 games into the 1970-71 season.

In 1975 he returned to the Canadiens as director of player development and served in that role until 1995, with the exception of the 1979-80 and 1980-81 seasons, when he went back to coaching the team. He was part of Canadiens teams that won the Stanley Cup four straight times between 1976 and 1979, and again in 1986 and 1993.

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
