Bio

Butch Bouchard Bio

Bouchard grew up during the Great Depression and couldn't afford his own skates or hockey equipment until he was a teenager, but he became a four-time Stanley Cup winner, captain of his hometown Montreal Canadiens and a Hockey Hall of Famer.

At 6-foot-2 and 205 pounds, Bouchard (whose real name was Emile), was a giant in the NHL of the 1940s. In his first training camp with the Canadiens, Bouchard made an impression with his physical play, even against Montreal's most respected veterans. He made the NHL to stay in 1941-42 and was a pillar of Montreal's defense for the next 15 seasons thanks to his combination of toughness, positioning, passing skills and hockey knowledge.
