Saddened to learn of the passing of Charlie Hodge on April 16 at the age of 82.
Hodge, who was part of six Stanley Cup teams with Montreal in the 1950s and ’60s, played 237 games with Canadiens over 10 seasons, starting out as a backup to Jacques Plante before becoming the No. 1 goalie in 1963. He won the Vézina Trophy twice, in 1963-64 and 1965-66.
In later years, Hodge was a scout for Tampa Bay and Pittsburgh.
