Pit Lepine appeared in more than 500 games with the Montreal Canadiens during the 1920s and 1930s before he was named the team’s coach in 1939, following the death of Babe Siebert.

Lepine, though, took over a team that was showing its age and had little in the way of prospects.

He led the Canadiens to a 10-33-5 record in 48 games and the team missed the playoffs.

During his tenure, Toe Blake recorded 36 points in 48 games and was named to the NHL’s First All-Star Team.

Lepine was fired at the end of the 1939-40 and replaced by Dick Irvin.
