March 2013 - Geoffrion has announced his retirement from hockey as a result of the head injury. Eric Daoust
November, 2012 - Geoffrion suffered a devastating head injury, which actually fractured his skull. A return this season is unlikely. - Dobber
October 2012 – Geoffrion was re-signed by Montreal for just a single season in mid-July and was sent to play in Hamilton for the upcoming season. When the lockout ends, Geoffrion is far from secure with a spot on the Habs, and in four games to start the campaign, he has been rather disappointingly invisible with only a single goal on a young team that he should be a driving force on. He did show some leadership and sandpaper in grabbing Toronto’s Kenny Ryan and creating a tussle at center ice shortly after Ryan scored a pair of goals early in the first period of a game in Toronto. Jason Banks
May 2012 – Geoffrion was traded to the Canadians in February and joined his family legacy of Habs. He is a big, solid power forward that does many things well out on the ice. Geoffrion possesses a strong skating stride, shot, on-ice vision, and likes to play the physical game as well. He has good puck skills in which he likes to drive to the net though he could shoot the biscuit more often to be more of an offensive threat. He was a four-year standout at Wisconsin (WCHA) and completed his second in the pro ranks between the AHL and NHL.
Geoffrion is a strong two-way power forward with some offensive touch.
