More than 150 remember Habs legend Pollock

NORTH HATLEY, Quebec -- Jean Beliveau, Senator Frank
Mahovlich and Scotty Bowman were among the mourners Monday at a
memorial service for Sam Pollock, the former general manager who
built the Montreal Canadiens Stanley Cup dynasties in the 1960s and
1970s.

Dickie Moore, along with former Canadiens coach Claude Ruel and
others from the organization, joined about 150 people in attendance
at the one-hour service at St. Elizabeth of Hungary church in the
picturesque Eastern Townships village.

Pollock, who died last week in Toronto at 81, was named vice
president and general manager of the Canadiens in 1964. In 14
years, he built nine Stanley Cup-winning teams. He was selected to
the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1978.

He later served on the board and was the chief executive officer
of the Toronto Blue Jays.
