Former Montreal Canadiens player Paul Meger died Tuesday in Barrie, Ontario, at the age of 90, the team said on Wednesday.
Meger played 212 career games in the National Hockey League, all in the Canadiens uniform, between 1950-51 and 1954-55.
He had 91 points, including 39 goals, during that period.
The striker from Saskatchewan won the Stanley Cup in 1953.
His career came to an abrupt end when he was only 25 when he suffered a head injury due to an accidental skate shot by Léo Labine of the Boston Bruins. He then had to undergo many operations.
