Pierre Allard

This is Pierre Allard. Born in Montreal, he dreamed of playing for Les Canadiens. After playing in the QMJHL with St. Hyachinthe and Shawinigan, Allard was invited as a free agent to Montreal's training camp in 1992, though he was quickly cut.

Allard jumped the pond and enjoyed a lengthy career in Europe, starring France for two years before moving to Manchester until 2003. At the same time he acquired French citizenship and represent France at the World Championship level 5 times, as well as at the 1998 Olympics in Nagano.

Allard returned to Montreal after that, playing some senior hockey while earning a degree in Kinesiology from the University of Montreal in 2005. He opened his strength and conditioning business, focusing on hockey players including the likes of Kris Letang and Max Talbot.

Allard's success saw him finally make the Montreal Canadiens in 2010, as the team hired him as a strength and conditioning coach.
