The Montreal Canadiens have a rich history, and every player who has worn this jersey is part of that legacy.

In the case of Sergei Berezin, it's even more significant, as he scored the franchise's 10,000th goal, a milestone he reached in 2002.
We have just learned that Berezin has passed away suddenly, and the hockey world is in shock. He was only 52 years old.
"Shocking news. Terribly sad." - Eric Engels

"The NHL Alumni Association is heartbroken to learn of the sudden passing of Sergei Berezin at the age of 52 years old.

Sergei was drafted in the 10th round of the 1994 Entry Draft to the MapleLeafs. He would soon show his spectacular play when he joined the Leafs roster in 1996, spending five seasons with the team.

Berezin then played for the Arizona Coyotes, Montreal Canadiens, Chicago Blackhawks and the Washington Capitals as his career went on. He totalled for 502 regular-season games-played, scoring 286 points.

In his retirement, he enjoyed coaching minor hockey, playing tennis, and most importantly, spending time with his family.

We send our deepest condolences to Sergei's family, friends, and former teammates during this extremely difficult time."
