Retro Carbonneau

Guy Carbonneau spent his last season in the NHL as its oldest player, and on March 18, 2000 became the only 40-year-old then in the league. In recognition of this milestone, during the 1999-2000 season I wrote this retrospective which highlights each season of Guy's 24 year career in Junior A, minor hockey, and his three NHL teams.

About Retro Carbonneau:

Unless otherwise indicated, I authored all the articles in the Retro Carbonneau series, based on research on the Internet, in books, periodicals, programs and yearbooks. No personal interviews were involved (not that I wouldn’t have been happy to conduct them!), and the material herein is not authorized by Guy Carbonneau. I have credited my major sources in each section, and these sources are also a great bibliography for those who wish to read more about Carbo. Certain passages from source materials and quotations from Guy were originally in French and the translations of these are my own, including the excerpts from Les Canadiens magazines. I tried very hard to keep all dates and facts straight, but cannot guarantee 100% accuracy. If any readers have an addition or correction, please e-mail me at dlau@wi.rr.com.
