Defensive Ace: Ken Mosdell

The Montreal Canadiens have a long history of great defensive forwards, including Guy Carbonneau, Doug Jarvis, Claude Provost and of course Bob Gainey.

Lost in the sands of time is Kenny Mosdell, One of the NHL's top defensive specialists in the 1940s and 1950s was Montreal born Ken Mosdell.

Kenny Mosdell, a four time Stanley Cup champion with the Canadiens, saw big ice time as the Habs #1 shutdown guy. Mosdell would get the call every time the opposing team sent its No. 1 line into action. If it was Boston, he'd be out there against Milt Schmidt; if it was Detroit, he'd be checking Sid Abel of the Production Line, which had Gordie Howe and Ted Lindsay as the wingers; if it was Toronto, No. 18 Mosdell would be all over the Leafs' Syl Apps.
