Prior to the game between Montreal and New Jersey, the Canadiens took some time to honor the memory of Gary Carter, who passed away at the age of 57 on Thursday.
Gary Carter was taken by the Montreal Expos in the third round of the 1972 amateur draft. He went on to play in parts of 11 seasons with the Expos and represented them in the All-Star Game seven times. In 1985 he joined the New York Mets, where he participated in another four All-Star Games and earned a World Series ring in 1986. Carter was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2003.
The Canadiens had Carter’s No. 8 on the back of their jerseys as they participated in their pre-game warmup. Those jerseys will be auctioned off to help the Gary Carter Foundation.
