The speedy 5-foot-6 forward became the third NHLer, after Howie Morenz and New York Americans star forward Nels Stewart, to reach the 250-goal plateau.
Joliat, the Canadiens all-time points leader since the previous year, would also surpass Morenz as the team’s all-time marksman by the end of the season. The colorful forward with the distinctive black peaked cap, put 270 pucks past opposing goalies by the time he hung up his skates at the end of the 1937-38 season. Maurice Richard would eventually dethrone him in 1950-51.
