In 1958, a training accident severely injured him and his life was saved by emergency surgery. Despite advice from his doctors to stop playing for a season, Geoffrion was on the ice six weeks later to take part in the Stanley Cup finals.
Geoffrion first retired in 1964, but returned two seasons later to play for the New York Rangers.

He tried coaching again in 1972 for the Atlanta Flames, but again had to quit early.
