Where are they now? Richard Sévigny


MONTREAL | May 22nd, 2009
Where are they now? Richard Sévigny
The Canadiens didn’t pile up 100 years of history without the blood, sweatand tears of the over 750 players to have ever worn the uniform. From the likes of Donald Audette to Zarley Zalapski, there are former Habs scatteredall over the world. Although many hardcore Canadiens fans can rattle off the career accomplishments of hundreds of their old heroes, the question remains: what are these guys up to today? Today’s guest: Richard Sévigny:

Where do you live now?
I’ve been living Lanoraie, in the Lanaudière region of Quebec, for the last four years.

What are you doing now?
I’m an educator at a private college and have been doing that for about seven or eight years now.

How many times per year do you lace up the skates?
For last 15 years or so, I’ve taken part in the Hockey Legends and Canadiens Alumni tournaments. Overall, I probably play about 40 games per year.

Have you kept in touch with any former teammates?
With the tournaments, we see each other practically every weekend.

How many Canadiens games do you watch per season?
I watch a few and I also follow them online. I watch about 20 to 25 games per year.

When was the last time you were in Montreal to watch a game?
I was at their final regular season game against the Penguins.  Before that, my last visit was before the holidays.

Who is your favorite player on the current roster?
I don’t really have a favorite but if you want a name, I’ll say Maxim Lapierre. He works hard every game and I can appreciate that.

Of all you’ve collected and still have from your years with the Canadiens, what’s your favorite?
I have a photo of myself that made its way around North America and Europe. It’s a really nice photo; I like it a lot. Other than that, I have my ring from 1979.  Overall, though, I’m not the type of guy to live in the past. Material items are secondary to me. To have had the chance to play at the NHL level, that’s probably the best memory I could ever have.
