Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Claude Cyr
Goaltender Claude Cyr spent four seasons with the Hull/Ottawa Canadiens both as a Junior player, a Senior player and a professional, starting in 1957. Cyr won a Memorial Cup in 1958, and had another career highlight while still playing Senior hockey. Cyr, born in Montreal, Quebec on March 27th 1939 was summoned by his hometown Canadiens during his third season and soon found himself in Les Habitants net.

Cyr played just one period with the Canadiens, and it proved to be the only NHL experience of his career. Hull/Ottawa loaned Cyr to Montreal and when starter Claude Pronovost surrendered five goals to the Toronto Maple Leafs through two periods on March 19th, 1959, Cyr came in to start the third and gave up just one goal the rest of the way.

Cyr turned pro officially during the 1959-60 season and tended the nets for seven different clubs over the next four seasons as well as representing Canada at the World Championships in 1961.

In 1963, Cyr returned to Senior hockey spending the final four years of his career in the Quebec Senior Hockey League minding the net for four different franchises before hanging up his pads in 1967.
