William Ronald (Bill) Durnan (born January 22, 1916 in Toronto, Ontario - October 31, 1972) was a Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender who played for the Montreal Canadiens in the National Hockey League (NHL). He was also the last goaltender to be a captain in the National Hockey League, and one of only four ever with Chuck Gardiner, George Hainsworth and John Ross Roach. Bill Durnan was ambidextrous, meaning he could catch with either hand. This star goalie is one of the greatest Montreal Canadiens in history.
