Bernard (Boom Boom) Geoffrion's long-awaited jersey retirement will likely be a more sombre affair after the Montreal Canadiens great was diagnosed with stomach cancer.

The 75-year-old who is credited with inventing the slapshot has vowed to attend the ceremony at the Bell Centre on Saturday despite the disease, which was discovered during a surgical procedure last week in Atlanta.

Wouldn't you think if you made it all the way to age 75 escaping this cursed disease, you could at least get to die in your sleep?
