SHAYNE CORSON TELLS STORY OF CASHING HIS FIRST CHEQUE FROM THE HABS AT POPULAR MONTREAL STRIP CLUB

Apr 8, 2021 à 7h56      TIM TUCKER
Shayne Corson had a lengthy NHL career, playing 1156 regular season games while scoring 273 goals and 693 points. He was, and is, a well-respected player across the league. However, during a recent appearance on the Spittin' Chiclets podcast, Corson revealed a story about his first NHL payment that he was glad the team that drafted him did know about.

"I got my cheque from the Montreal Canadiens and I took it and cashed it a Chez Parée," said Corson while trying to stop himself from laughing.

For anyone unfamiliar with Chez Parée, it is a very well-known strip cub in the heart of Montreal. Corson would have received his first cheque from the Habs in 1985, but the club still exists to this day, although it is temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Can you imagine if they knew?" said Corson. "This is their first-rounder, cashing their cheque at Chez Parée."

Corson explained he had to give a percentage to the club in order to get the cash he wanted.

Corson was selected 8th overall by the Montreal Canadiens in the 1984 entry draft. He would do two stints with the Habs, as well as playing for the Toronto Maple Leafs, Edmonton Oilers, St. Louis Blues and Dallas Stars before retiring in 2004.
