Former Canadiens forward putting Stanley Cup rings up for auction

Former Montreal Canadiens forward and head coach Mario Tremblay has decided to put three of his five Stanley Cup rings up for auction.

The rings, from his Stanley Cup championships in 1977, 1978 and 1979, are expected to fetch anywhere from $10,000 to $15,000 USD.

Tremblay says his reasoning behind putting the rings up for auction is he wants to enjoy his time left on earth and be able to leave money behind for his family, especially after seeing his former teammate Guy Lafleur as well as former Quebecor Mike Bossy pass away relatively young.

His two other rings are from 1976 and 1986, but Tremblay's lost his first one and he has a pretty special reason for wanting to keep the one from his fifth and final Stanley Cup championship. He originally gave the 1986 ring to his father and when he passed away, his father gave the ring back to the long-time Canadiens forward.


The 66-year-old spent two seasons behind the Canadiens bench as a head coach between 1995 and 1997, including for Patrick Roy's final game in Montreal. He went on to become an assistant coach for eight more seasons, seven with Minnesota and one with New Jersey, before joining RDS as an in-studio analyst, a role which he retired from earlier this month.
