Condolences to the Bouchard family. I hope the Habs put up an online condolence form. He and his son Pierre were great Habs.

Sad news, but on a bright note 92 years is a pretty good run! Rest in Peace Emile.
It ain't easy being a Habs fan in Toronto, but it sure is fun.

Never had the pleasure of seeing him play but what an amazing story being in the NHL having only learned how to skate 6 years before making it. Four Cups to his name. Another great leaves us. :(
