An exceptional skater known for his contributions on both ends of the ice, Tremblay helped Montreal win four Cups between 1965 and 1969, when injuries forced him to retire at age 31.
He went on to have a successful 30-year career as an analyst and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame as a broadcaster in 2002.
