 MONTREAL (AP) -Hall of Fame defenseman Ken Reardon has died following a lengthy illness, the Montreal Canadiens announced Saturday night. He was 86.
Noted for his rugged play, Reardon was a two-time NHL first team All-Star during his seven-year career, which included a pair of Stanley Cup championships. He also earned three second-team All-Star selections.
Reardon, whose career was temporarily halted after he joined the Canadian Army in 1942, retired as a player in 1950 and remained with the Canadiens as a scout, manager and vice president during Montreal's run of Stanley Cup titles from 1956-60.
Reardon, inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1966, finished with 26 goals and 96 assists in 341 NHL games.
