AN EXCITING PLAYER WHO ENJOYED THE PHYSICAL GAME, BRIAN BELLOWS MADE GOOD USE OF HIS SPEED AND SOFT HANDS.

A widely heralded junior who was the driving force behind the Kitchener Rangers’ Memorial Cup triumph in the spring of 1982, Brian Bellows spent three seasons in Montreal, helping the team hoist the 24th Stanley Cup in franchise history.

The second player chosen in the 1982 NHL Entry Draft, Bellows broke into the Minnesota lineup the next fall, immediately establishing himself as a top-level sniper with 35 goals in his rookie campaign. He spent the first decade of his 17-year NHL career with the North Stars, lighting the lamp at least 23 times each season. He reached the 40-goal plateau three times and notched a career-high 55 markers in 1989-90.

Traded to the Montreal Canadiens just prior to the 1992-93 season, Bellows proved to be the key component the Habs had been looking for. He sparked the team’s offense using size and strength to overcome the clutch and grab tactics used in the NHL of the 1990s. Bellows adapted quickly to his new home, registered the fourth 40-goal campaign of his career in his first season in Montreal.

An exciting and gritty player, Bellows put his speed and puck-carrying ability to good use for the Canadiens, catching passes on the fly and bearing down on his target. He was, as he had been since childhood, always a force to be reckoned with in the offensive zone.

In 1992-93, he finished the regular schedule with 88 points, good enough for third place on the team, and he continued to produce offensively throughout the playoffs. Bellows notched 15 points in the postseason, third best on the team that year, and the Canadiens went all the way, winning Stanley Cup No. 24 that spring.

Bellows continued his offensive productivity in his second season with the Habs, potting 33 goals and assisting on 38 others; his 71 points were second only to Vincent Damphousse in 1993-94. Injuries prevented the skilled left winger from participating in half of the games in the lockout-shortened 1994-95 campaign, his last year with the Canadiens.

Traded to Tampa Bay in June 1995, Bellows reached the 20-goal mark for the 13th time of his career in 1995-96, before moving on to Anaheim. He retired after spending the 1998-99 season with the Washington Capitals.
