The North Stars acquired Jude Drouin from Montreal prior to the 1970-71 season. The young playmaker had no place in the Habs' crowded lineup and was deemed expendable. In Minnesota, however, he instantly became one of the first stars in North Stars history. He spent four and a half seasons in Bloomington, putting up 262 points during that time, and he is still a fan favorite among old time North Stars fans.
