Best wishes to Henri Richard in his fight against Alzheimer's Disease. I remember watching him play on TV many times. And I also met him the first time I met Maurice. Are there any recent stories about him and his illness? I will also do some looking up on it.

I did manage to find this: https://www.nhl.com/news/montreal-canadiens-henri-richard-impact-still-felt/c-312157220

TY, Larry.

The two greatest days of my life and Henri was part of it. I have my large color autographed photo of Maurice and Henri, which I took to the Detroit taping of the Antiques Roadshow in 2013. It is a reminder of just how important the Richards are to me.

Hi guys,
These few lines to present the highlights of David Desharnais this last season with his Swiss club Fribourg-Gottéron, who was trained by Christian Dubé :

We are very happy to have him in our organization.
Unfortunately, as with the National Hockey League, our season was canceled due to the covid-19.
Take care of yourself and your loved ones. 

Friendly greetings from Switzerland,

Thanks for that Swiss. Always liked DD. Unfortunately he got a lot of bad press in Montreal because he was placed in a situation over his head.

Andrei Markov has officially retired as a player according to TSN:

MONTREAL — Longtime Montreal Canadiens defenceman Andrei Markov announced his retirement from pro hockey on Thursday.

The 41-year-old Markov played 990 regular-season games with the Canadiens between 2000 and 2017 before returning home to Russia to finish his pro career.

Markov spent his final three years in the KHL, suiting up for the last time in the 2019-20 season with Yaroslavl Lokomotiv.

Montreal selected Markov 162nd overall in 1998, and he went on to produce 119 goals and 572 points while being named an NHL All-Star twice (2008, 2009).

Markov is tied with Hall of Famer Guy Lapointe for second in points among Canadiens defencemen, behind only Hall of Famer Larry Robinson (883).
