Lemaire played his entire NHL career with the Montreal Canadiens, and was part of eight Stanley Cup winning teams. 1968, 1969, 1971, 1973, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1979. He is one of only six NHL players to have scored two Stanley Cup winning goals, achieving the feat in both 1977 and 1979. (The five other players are Mike Bossy in 1982 and 1983, Bobby Orr in 1970 and 1972, Henri Richard in 1966 and 1971, Jean Béliveau in 1960 and 1965 and Toe Blake in 1944 and 1946). One of the two Cup-winners scored by Lemaire came at the 4:32 mark of the first overtime of Game Four in the 1977 Stanley Cup Finals. A model of consistency, Lemaire scored at least 20 goals in each of his 12 seasons. He retired from the NHL after the 1978–79 season to become a playing coach in Switzerland. . In 853 career NHL games, he recorded 366 goals and 469 assists for a total of 835 points. Jacques Lemaire learned to execute his slapshot when he was young using a heavy steel puck, making his shot second only to Bobby Hull for speed and accuracy.
