Hall of Fame alumni
Two members of the Montreal Juniors have been enshrined in the HHOF. One of them played for the Juniors, the other was one of the team's coaches.
Denis Savard was a local superstar and centreman, who played three seasons with the Juniors scoring 455 points in three years. He would go onto play many years for the Chicago Blackhawks, and won a Stanley Cup with the Montreal Canadiens in 1993. Jacques Laperriere had been a defenseman on the Montreal Canadiens. After retiring as a player, Laperrière took on the position of coach of the Montreal Juniors prior to the 1975-76 season. Partway through the following year he resigned because of the pressure and violence at the amateur level.
