Montreal Canadiens owner Geoff Molson helped rescue the pilot of an amphibious plane that crashed into a lake in Quebec on Saturday, a club spokesperson confirmed to Marian Scott of the Montreal Gazette.

Molson was in his boat on Lake Massawippi when a small aircraft crashed into the water. He helped the pilot out of the water and into his boat before taking him to paramedics who were on the scene.

The pilot suffered minor injuries.

Molson, along with his brothers, assumed ownership of the Canadiens in 2009.
