Photo flashback; plus Hall of Fame and alumni news

Our intrepid photo-finder Erik sends along this photo of Guy, circa 1970's when he captained the Chicoutimi Sagueneens:

I don't know how he finds these photos, but I'm sure glad he does!

The Hockey Hall of Fame's induction weekend was held recently and Guy's former teammate Mike Modano was among the inductees.  Modano feels that Guy should next get the nod:

“Look at Guy Carbonneau — played a long time, won the Selke, won the Stanley Cup. "  (source)
As do Brett Hull, Ed Belfour, and Joe Nieuwendyk.  Hull is quoted here:
"I think at some point they've got to take a look at Guy Carbonneau and look at his body of work without the numbers and look at what he did as a defensive centerman and a leader and a Stanley Cup winner and numerous Selke awards," Hull said. "At some point, they've got to start putting some players like Guy Carbonneau into the Hall of Fame. So what, they don't have 500 goals. But without them, you don't win championships."  (source)
On to some alumni news now.  The CN Canadiens Alumni Challenge was held recently in Montreal.  This was the tenth edition of the challenge and it raised $398,555 (Canadian) for charity.  Guy played on a team coached by Guy Lafleur which also included Patrice Brisebois, Stephane Richer, and Chris Nilan.   The band Simple Plan gave an acoustic performance before the game.  (source)

The alumni team will be coming to Owen Sound, Ontario on January 17th to play a game which is being dubbed the "Habs vs. Hab-Nots."  Guy will be on the team.  The game takes place at 7:30 PM at the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre, and benefits the United Way of Bruce Grey.  (source)

And finally, Guy will be taking part in a fantasy hockey camp this coming August.  The Kelly Chase Fantasy Hockey Camp will be held in Saskatoon at the Harold Latrace Arena from August 27 to 29. The cost starts at $2,500 and all proceeds go towards Saskatoon's Inner City Hockey Leagues and Saskatoon Children's Hospital.  (source)

That's all the news for now.  Enjoy!
