Library and Archives Canada apparently has its eyes on memorabilia from Montreal Canadiens great Jean Beliveau’s legendary hockey career.
A month or so after Beliveau’s death in early December, the federal record keeper mused about getting its hands on the hockey legend’s personal effects.
It seems Library and Archives has a long-standing interest in Beliveau, who won 10 Stanley Cups in his 20 seasons as a player from 1950 to 1971.
A January briefing note says the department had reached out to Beliveau since his retirement in 1971. However, Library and Archives went home empty-handed the last time it sought Beliveau’s personal mementos.
The briefing note says the department bid unsuccessfully on some of the items Beliveau put up for auction in 2005.
