ST. PAUL, Minn. - Hall of Famer Jean Beliveau was honoured with a moment of silence before the Montreal Canadiens and Minnesota Wild played Wednesday night.
Beliveau died Tuesday at age 83.
The longtime Montreal captain won 10 Stanley Cups in his 20-season playing career and seven more as an executive. After he retired in 1971, Beliveau remained active in the Canadiens' organization.
All Montreal players wore a No. 4 sticker on their helmets, and general manager Marc Bergevin said he wants the Canadiens to play the game for Beliveau.
The team announced that a bronze statue of Beliveau will be on display across from the Bell Centre's main entrance through Saturday. Beliveau's body will lie in state at the Bell Centre on Sunday and Monday. His funeral is scheduled for Wednesday.
