Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Andre Binette
Goalie Andre Binette, known for his lightning fast reflexes, played junior hockey with the Trois Rivieres Flambeaux of the QJHL

The following year Binette was loaned by the QHL's Montreal Royals to the NHL's Montreal Canadiens who needed a replacement for their injured starter Jacques Plante. He played just that one game, allowing four goals in a 7-4 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks.

Binette continued to play hockey for another three years with various minor-league teams before retiring. He was enticed to come out of retirement by the Montreal Olympics of the QSHL for one year and was their number one netminder during the Allan Cup playoffs where he won eleven games, losing five while recording four shutouts and a 2.60 GAA.
