Defensive specialist Armand Mondou spent 12 years with the Canadiens and while he never scored more than seven goals in a single season, his solid checking and dedicated team play made him among the most valuable Habs of his era.

The Yamaska, QC native joined the Canadiens during the 1928-29 season after spending the two previous campaigns skating with the Providence Reds.  Mondou launched his NHL career by notching the first three of his 47 career goals in his rookie season.

Mondou, who wore 13 different numbers during his NHL tenure, made good use of his 5-foot-10, 175-pound frame as a gritty left winger. Almost always staying within the rules of the game, he was rarely penalized as a result of his efforts, accumulating only 118 minutes in the box over 386 regular season games.

A skilled playmaker and key component to the 1930 and 1931 Stanley Cups, Mondou, who has been cited as being among the originators of the slap shot, secured a place for himself in hockey history on November 10, 1934.

Awarded the NHL’s first penalty shot, Mondou skated in alone on former teammate George Hainsworth, unsuccessful in his attempt to foil the Toronto goaltender.

The popular veteran, who capped his career in a Montreal uniform during the 1939-40 season, began his last year with an appearance in a benefit game between the Habs and the best players from the other six NHL teams with proceeds going to the family of Babe Siebert, hired to run the Montreal bench for the upcoming season but who drowned over the summer.
