The Numbers game of Andrei Markov

On Thursday, after reading The Gazette’s Dave Stubbs’ feature on Andrei Markov, now entering his 13 year in the NHL, all with the Canadiens, it made me wonder.  In these past 12 seasons, how many Habs GMs has Markov seen?  Number of Habs head Coaches Markov has played for in that time span? Captains, etc.?

So I compiled the following table.


Picked 162 overall by the Canadiens back in the 1997 Entry Draft (6th Round).


Number of different ownership groups that have owned the Montreal Canadiens during Markov’s time;  Molson Inc., George Gillett Jr, and Molson family lead by Geoff, Andrew and Justin Molson.


Number of different GMs during Markov’s time: Rejean Houle, André Savard, Bob Gainey, Pierre Gauthier, Marc Bergevin.


Number  of different Head Coaches Andrei Markov has played for; Alain Vigneault, Michel Therrien (twice), Claude Julien, Bob Gainey (twice), Guy Carbonneau, Jacques Martin, Randy Cunneyworth.


Number of Captains Markov served under; Saku Koivu, and Brian Gionta.


Number of NHL Regular Season Games played.


Number of Regular Season Goals in the NHL.


Number of Regular Season  Assists in the NHL.


Number of Regular Season Points in the NHL.
