Rejean Houle was the Montreal Canadiens and the NHL's first overall draft pick in the 1969 amateur draft. He joined the Canadiens to stay in the 1970-71 season. Never the big scorer Montreal felt he would be Rejean developed into a swift skating, solid winger who would score between 20-30 goals per year and play excellent defense.

In 1973-74 he jumped to the WHA Quebec Nordiques. There in the more offensive oriented new league Houle piled up the scoring numbers, scoring 40 or more goals in two consecutive seasons. He returned to the NHL Canadiens in 1976-77 and retired during the 1981-82 season.

During the Summit Houle would spend most of his time playing on the "French Selection" line with Serge Bernier and Marc Tardif. Houle would play superbly defensively however he along with his linemates struggled to provide Team Canada with any offensive support.
