Flowers and objects at the base of the statue of Guy Lafleur before the game between the Boston Bruins and the Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre on April 24, 2022.

But it is too early to discuss whether the city will name a street, park or other public space after Lafleur, who died of lung cancer Friday at age 70, she added at a news conference at city hall.

“Of course, we will find a way to honour the memory and legacy of Mr. Lafleur,” Plante said.

However, she noted that the rules governing the naming of public places stipulate that a person must have died at least a year before a space can be named after them.

The flag at city hall was lowered to half-mast following Lafleur’s death and city council observed a minute of silence in his honour Monday.

“We are definitely looking forward to this memorial, to this moment where Montrealers will be invited to show their affection and respect for Mr. Lafleur,” Plante said of the official funeral, which will be held on May 3 at 11 a.m., at Mary Queen of the World Cathedral.
