A native of Papineau, QC, Louis Berlinquette played his first four games in a Canadiens uniform during the 1911-12 NHA season. He wore Habs colors for the next dozen years, a reliable second-liner for most of his career who rose to the occasion when the opportunity to shine presented itself.

The 24-year-old left wing failed to make the score sheet in the four games he played in his rookie campaign. He did record $5.00 in fines for on-ice offences, as penalty minutes were not brought in until the 1914-15 season.

He scored four times in his sophomore campaign and by his third season had established himself as a valued contributor, potting four goals and adding nine assists as well as turning over $14.00 in hard-earned currency.

Following a somewhat disappointing four-point regular season that ended well for the Habs as they hoisted the Stanley Cup for the first time ever, Berlinquette rebounded the next winter with an eight-goal harvest in 1916-17.

Spending most of his career making the best of the little left wing time left available by Montreal front-liners, the 5-foot-11, 175-pounder watched as Donald Smith, Jack Laviolette, Joe Malone and then Amos Arbour skated on the first line.

Playing alongside Odie Cleghorn, Berlinquette enjoyed the most productive seasons of his career at an age when most players had already hung up their skates. He hit his offensive stride at 32, recording a 17-point campaign in 1919-20 and then improved it to 11 goals and nine assists the following season.

The 20-point effort in 1920-21 represented his most productive season. The 34-year-old veteran hit his career high of 13 goals in 1921-22, the last season he enjoyed first-line minutes. Aurele Joliat took over Montreal’s top left wing spot in 1922-23, Berlinquette’s final season with the Habs.

After spending the 1923-24 season with Saskatoon of the WCHL Berlinquette returned to Montreal, suiting up with the Maroons at the Forum in 1924-25 and then appearing with the Pittsburgh Pirates the following season, his last NHL campaign.
