Dollard St. Laurent, one of the solid Blackhawks defensemen from the 1961 Stanley Cup championship-winning team, passed away on April 6, 2015, at the age of 85.

"Dolly," as he was called by his teamates, played on the 1961 championship after being a part of four Montreal Cup-winning squads. Wearing No. 19, Dolly played from 1958-62 in Chicago after General Manager Tommy Ivan got him in a trade with Montreal. He appeared in five All-Star Games, the last two in a Blackhawks uniform.

Considered a steady stay-at-home defender at the blue line, Dolly played alongside and in front of Hall of Famers Glenn Hall, Bobby Hull, Stan Mikita and Pierre Pilote. His Blackhawks career included 269 regular-season games and 33 playoff contests.
