MONTREAL -- Former Canadiens defenseman Francis Bouillon is one of five new members of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League's Hall of Fame, to be officially inducted in April.
In addition to the gritty rearguard, the Class of 2017 includes Brad Richards, Jean-Sebastien Giguere, Gaston Therrien, and Luc Lachapelle, the latter being honored posthumously.
Bouillon played four seasons in the QMJHL -- three with the Laval Titan and one with the Granby Predateurs -- registering 22 goals and 80 assists over 253 regular season games. He picked up another 39 points in 60 playoff games.
Over the course of his Junior career, Bouillon won the President's Cup twice, with Laval in 1992-93 and Granby in 1995-96. He ended his stint in the QMJHL as a Memorial Cup champion with the Predateurs in 1996, bringing the CHL's top prize back to Quebec following a 25-year drought.
