We are informed that sadly, the ice hockey player, who goes by the name of ‘The Flower,’ has passed away on April 22, 2022. Guy Lafleur’s cause of death is reported due to his disease, cancer.

Must be noted that the US day News does not confirm nor reject any of this information. Just in case you read incorrect details, please, allow us to know.

Born on September 20, 1951, the former professional ice hockey player was considered to be the first player in National Hockey League (NHL) history to score 50 goals in six consecutive seasons as well as 50 goals and 100 points in six consecutive seasons.

Mr. Lafleur played right wing for the Montreal Canadiens, New York Rangers, and Quebec Nordiques between 1971 and 1991, in an NHL career spanning 17 seasons as well as five Stanley Cup championships in 1973, 1976, 1977, 1978, and 1979.

Le Démon Blond was named one of the ‘100 Greatest NHL Players in history in 2017. This talented player struggled to live up to expectations in the league at first, the more so in that Dionne became an immediate star in Detroit who led his team in scoring over his first three seasons.

The flower was able to successfully develop his trademark smooth skating style and scoring touch by 1974. The process made him one of the most popular players on a very popular team; fans chanted “Guy, Guy, Guy!” whenever he touched the puck.

He gained popularity among English fans as “Flower” due to his literal translation of his surname, while he was dubbed “Le Démon Blond” (the Blond Demon) among his French fans.

Thoughts and prayers are with Guy Lafleur’s family, friends, fans, and teammates. 🖤🕊

Guy Lafleur’s Cause of Death

Following Guy Lafleur’s cause of death, it was shared with the public that the legend had been battling lung cancer ever since a cancerous white spot was found on his right lung in September 2019, and his family on Thursday issued a statement thanking fans for their support.

CBC News Alerts announced his death: “BREAKING: Montreal Canadiens icon GuyLafleur, who captured five Stanley Cup titles and was a hockey hero in Quebec long before his NHL playing days, has died. He was 70.”

He underwent the first surgery in order to remove both the upper lobe of his lung and lymph nodes at Centre Hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (CHUM), the University of Montreal’s medical center.

Guy Lafleur's cause of death is reported due to his disease, cancer.

In October 2020, Mr. Lafleur received the bad news that his cancer had been back, and had to restart treatment. His family shared at that point: “The Lafleur family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Montreal Canadiens fans for their empathy and for the outpouring of love they’ve shown Guy Lafleur.”

It was added: “To this end, he has appointments at the CHUM occasionally for check-ups. After a short visit to the CHUM earlier this week, Guy is back home.”

During those hard times, the legend expressed: “I get the immunotherapy the first three weeks, and then the fourth week I have the big chemo. It’s the chemotherapy that really hurts you badly. There’s not a week that’s the same. “

He shared in an interview: “The last two weeks, I was feeling very, very bad and sleeping a lot. But the last three days I feel a lot better — a lot of ups and downs.”

Stuntman Stu tweeted: “Growing up in Montreal he was larger than life. Hearing the Forum crowd chanting his name is forever etched in my head. Years later I got the chance to meet him at an event in Ottawa. I introduced him the same way the late Claude Mouton would, GUYLafleur. RIP.”
