Beliveau in video chat with space station @NHL

LONGUEUIL, Quebec (AP) -Hockey legend Jean Beliveau has a fan in outer space.

The former Montreal Canadiens star will be hooked up Monday through a video link to chat with Canadian astronaut Bob Thirsk aboard the International Space Station.

A Canadian Space Agency spokesman says Thursday the astronaut brought along a photo of Beliveau in uniform for his space voyage.

The record-breaking astronaut, Canada's longest-serving spaceman, is into the fourth month of his six-month stay on the orbiting space lab. He's to return Nov. 23.
