A rugged, no-nonsense defenseman who played almost 500 regular season NHL games, Albert Langlois wore four different sweaters during his career. Breaking in with a single game in Canadiens colors during the 1957-58 campaign and returning for seven postseason games with the reigning dynasty, Langois had his name added to the Stanley Cup as a rookie.

Cracking the lineup to start the 1958-59 schedule, the man who teammates referred to as “Junior”, soon proved to be one of the league’s premier stay-at-home defensemen, regularly putting his 6-foot, 205-pound frame to good use.

He laid out opposing players, usually with devastating body checks but occasionally with his fists when the situation called for it. Whatever the method, his hard-hitting style always lifted Forum fans from their seats in appreciation.

The Stanley Cup engravings that came his way in both 1959 and 1960 were more richly deserved than was his first mention, coming after entire seasons of dedicated effort to team success. The 1959-60 season, his second complete campaign with the Habs, saw the personable and popular Langlois finally pot his first NHL goal.

He scored his second and final goal as a member of the Canadiens in 1960-61 and at season’s end was dealt to New York, where he had the most productive offensive season of his career, scoring seven times and adding 18 assists while helping the usually hapless Rangers to a rare playoff berth.

Traded to Detroit in 1963-64, Langlois finished his NHL tenure with the Bruins in 1965-66 and then spent two seasons in the Western Hockey League before embarking on a successful business career in Southern California.
