Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Red Goupille
Defenceman Red Goupille played over 200 NHL games in the 30s and 40s. He was a solid positional player who could play an abrasive style when the need arose.

Born in Trois Rivieres, Quebec, Goupille spent most of the 1935-36 season between the senior Lafontaine club of Montreal and received a four game recall to the NHL's Canadiens. The next season he was elevated to the AHL's New Haven Eagles then earned a regular spot with the Habs in 1937-38. He saw considerable time in the minors the next year before regaining his place on the roster in 1939-40. The steady blueliner was on hand in October, 1939 for the Babe Siebert Memorial Game in honour of the Canadiens' superstar who died tragically in the off-season.

Goupille provided stability to the Habs' defence until the early stages of the 1942-43 schedule when he suited up for the Montreal Army. After two years of military service, he returned to Quebec with the senior Hull Volants. This was followed by five years with the Sherbrooke Saints before he retired in 1951.
