MONTREAL - Guy Lafleur is hanging up his skates for good.

The former Habs star announced Tuesday his farewell tour, taking him across the province in a series of seven games with Canadiens alumni.

The tour will begin Oct. 29 in Sherbrooke, reaching its finale at the Bell Centre on Dec. 5 during a game exclusively for Hall of Famers.

"There are so many great moments in Montreal and the fans here are always behind me, so it's going to be a special night in Montreal," he said.

Major hockey stars will take on No. 10 and other former Canadiens in Sherbrooke, Drummondville, Shawinigan, Rimouski and Saguenay throughout the tour.

On Nov. 14 in Quebec, the tour will bring together the Habs, the Rangers and the Nordiques, the three teams with which The Flower played. Each team will play two periods, and Lafleur will wear the uniform for each team, one for each period.

When the curtain falls on Dec. 5 at the Bell Centre, the biggest names in the Hall of Fame will take to the ice, including Pat Lafontaine, Brian Leetch, Gilbert Perreault, Luc Robitaille, Michel Goulet and Marcel Dionne.

"It gives a last chance for the kids who never saw us play. When the question was asked… if we still skate, (I said), ‘Of course we do, but maybe at a slower pace,'" said Dionne.

During his career, Lafleur led the Canadiens to five Stanley Cup championships while amassing plenty of individual honours, including the Art Ross Trophy.

Lafleur was the youngest player in history to reach 400 goals and 1,000 career points and had six consecutive seasons with 50 goals. He remains to this day the Canadiens leader in assists and career points.

"He was always a team player. He didn't ask for anything. He came to play, he came to practice," said his former coach Michel Bergeron.

Lafleur had his famous number 10 retired by the Canadiens on Feb. 16, 1985, and three years later made his entrance into the Hall of Fame.

In the 1988-1989 season, to the delight of his fans, he made a comeback, amassing 45 points with the New York Rangers.

He ended his career in the Quebec Nordiques uniform, the team he played for from 1989 to 1991.
