TOUGH AND STRONG DESPITE HIS 5-FOOT-8 FRAME, FORWARD WILDOR LAROCHELLE APPEARED IN MORE THAN 400 GAMES WITH THE CANADIENS, WINNING TWO STANLEY CUPS.

Wildor Larochelle, a 19-year-old Sorel, Quebec native, cracked the Montreal Canadiens’ lineup for the first time in 1925-26. He proudly wore the Habs jersey for 11 seasons with the club, one of the longest tenures of his era.

In his first three seasons, Larochelle saw limited ice time and as a result, was assigned to the Providence Reds of the Canadian-American Hockey League for the bulk of the 1928-29 campaign. There he developed a scoring touch and after a season in the minors, he returned to the Canadiens in 1929-30 a changed player.

More aggressive and with a nose for the net, he entered the most productive phase of his career, playing alongside Pit Lépine and Georges Mantha. Upon his return to the club, Larochelle easily eclipsed his output of five goals in his previous three-season stint with the Habs. Finding the twine 14 times during the 1929-30 season and twice more in the playoffs, Larochelle helped lead the team to the franchise’s third Stanley Cup.

Tough and strong despite carrying less than 160 pounds on his 5-foot-8 frame, Larochelle missed very few games in his second stint with the Habs, successfully holding his own against bigger, heavier opponents. The Canadiens repeated as Stanley Cup Champions in the spring of 1931 with the stocky right winger contributing three points to the team’s postseason success.

Larochelle, who scored a career-high 18 goals in 1931-32, finished 1933-34 with 27 points, second only to Howie Morenz. He peaked the next year, notching 28 points. On March 8, 1934, the Habs recorded a 3-0 victory over the New York Americans on a night that saw the veteran forward score all three markers.

Thirteen games into the 1935-36 campaign, Larochelle was dealt to the Chicago Blackhawks, where he wound down his NHL career. He spent a season and a half in the Windy City before retiring rather than reporting to St. Louis of the American Hockey Association for the 1936-37 schedule.

Wildor Larochelle died in 1964. A street in his hometown bears his name.
