"Yvan Cournoyer (The Roadrunner)"
Yvan Cournoyer, was nicknamed "The Roadrunner" due to his small size and blazing speed, which he credited to longer blades on his skates. Cournoyer was named captain of the Montreal Canadiens in 1975 following the retirement of Henri Richard, pushing him to play harder in his new leadership role. Cournoyer would become only one of the Habs' two captains to win Stanley Cups throughout his entire (2+ year) tenure as captain, the other one being Maurice Richard, Henri's older brother. The speedy Cournoyer's ability to stay true to his form in his older age was a favorite topic of discussion of the Montreal fans and hockey media. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1982.
