Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Frenchy Lacroix
Goalie Albert Lacroix played five games for the Montreal Canadiens in 1925-26. He was better known in the minors and in the Boston area senior leagues.

The native of Newton, Massachusetts was a standout on his local high school before joining the senior Boston Navy Yard and AA Unicorns. "Frenchy" remained with the Unicorns when they joined the USAHA and posted a 4-1-0 record for the United States when they won the silver medal at the 1924 Chamonix Olympics.

In November 1925, Lacroix signed as a free agent with the Canadiens and posted a 1-4-0 record in five appearances. The next year he was the club's spare goalie but did not see any game action. Lacroix returned to the minors and played in the Northeast and Can-Am Leagues before retiring in 1931.
