Player Biography and Trivia

Cult/Star player for Montréal Canadiens

Durnan won the Vezina Trophy in six of his seven NHL seasons. He would have two glove hands, each specially made so that he could also hold the goal stick in either hand. He was also the last goalie to captain an NHL team until the Vancouver Canucks named Roberto Luongo their captain in 2008.
