Montreal Canadiens, Canadian professional ice hockey team based in Montreal. The oldest continually operating team in the National Hockey League, Canadiens have won more Stanley Cup titles than any other team and are the most successful franchise in League history. The Canadiens were established in 1909 as one of the founding teams of the National Hockey Association, forerunner of the NHL. The Canadiens won their first Stanley Cup championship in the 1915-16 season, triumphing in a thrilling five-game series against Portland Rosebuds of the Pacific Coast Hockey Association. Centre Howie Morenzwho, is considered by many to have been the greatest hockey player of pre-World War II, joined the team in 1923 and led Montreal to Stanley Cup victories in 1924, 1930, and 1931. Before the 1926-27 season, Canadiens moved into Montreal Forum, their home stadium for 70 seasons before teams departure in 1996. After Montreals fourth Stanley Cup title, in the 1930-31 season, Canadiens failed to win the Cup for 12 years, team's longest such drought of the century. In 1942, Montreal signed right wing Maurice Richard, future Hall of Famer who would go on to become the franchise career leader in goals. Richard teamed with Centre Elmer Lach and left wing Toe Blake to form the high-scoring Punch Line, and the trio headline Canadiens squads that won the Stanley Cup in 1944 and 1946. Blake retired in 1948, but he rejoined the team before the 1955-56 season as head coach, and he led the Canadiens into the most dominant period in team history. Blake guided a star-fill lineup that included Richard, his younger brother Henri Richard, Jean Beliveau, Doug Harvey, and Jacques Plante to record five consecutive Stanley Cups from 1956 to 1960. By the time he retired from coaching in 1968, Blake had coached the Canadiens to three more Stanley Cups, and his teams placed lower than second only once in his 13 years on bench. Montreal continued to dominate the League in the 1970s, winning six more Stanley Cups in that decade, including four in a row from 1976 to 1979 with teams lead by head coach Scotty Bowman and featuring future Hall of Fame players Guy Lafleur, Ken Dryden, and Larry Robinson.

While the team still qualify for the play-offs in each season of decade, they have won just one Stanley Cup. The Championship team of 1985-86 featured rookie goaltender Patrick Roy, who became the youngest Conn Smythe Trophy winner ever that year and would later retireafter finishing his career with the Colorado Avalanche as the NHLs winningest goalie of all time. The Canadiens won their 24 Stanley Cup title behind Roys netminding in the 1992-93 season.

For the time since 1917, Habs will be opening up their season against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday, October 3. That tilt is the first of a two-Game road trip to kick things off for the Canadiens, who will then head to Pittsburgh to face the Penguins on October 6. As announced on Wednesday, Montreal's home opener takes place on Thursday, October 11, when the Los Angeles Kings come to town. Pre-Game ceremonies begin at 7: 00 pm with the puck dropping late for 7: 30. The Habs have three dances with the Stanley Cup Champion Washington Capitals next season-including two on home ice-with first one taking place on November 1. The Canadiens will also host the Caps in a preseason tilt on September 20 in Quebec City. Tickets for that match up are already available HERE. Cup finalists Vegas Golden Knights, entering their sophomore season, will visit Bell Centre on November 10, while the Habs will be in Sin City in mid-December. In fact, Canadiens' trip to Nevada will be in the midst of two three-Game road swings on either side of Christmas, with stops in Colorado and Arizona before the break, and trips to Florida, Tampa, and Dallas to close out 2018. Moving into the New Year, league's biggest stars will descend on San Jose for the 2019 All-Star Weekend on January 25-26, marking the return of the event to the Bay Area for the first time since 1997. The following weekend is the Canadiens' annual Family Weekend, with a pair of matinee home Games against the New Jersey Devils and Edmonton Oilers on the agenda. Archrival Maple Leafs will bookend the Canadiens' season on April 6, this time on Montreal's turf as part of the Habs' annual Fan Appreciation Night festivities.

George Gillett sold the Montreal Canadiens to the Molson family a few days ago. Legendary Hockey Club is once again the property of the famous Molsons From Montreal. In 2001, Molson brewery sold 80. 1 percent of their shares of Montreal Canadiens and Molson Centre to George Gillett for about 275 million. At that time, brewery's intention was to reorganize itself and concentrate on what they do best: brewing and selling beer. Later on, Arena's name changed to Bell Centre as Gillett and BCE agreed on a 20-year contract over naming rights. Then, simple request from Gillett launched a vast sales rumor during the month of April. Gillett asked Bank of Montreal's financial advisers to evaluate the current value of the Club and Bell Centre. Rumor of the sale of the Club made headlines all over the Province of Quebec. Race was on to buy the most famous hockey club on earth. Many local groups were interested and were on the starting line. Pierre-Karl Peladeau of Quebecor, Serge Savard and his Group, BCE, Joey Saputo, Rene Angelil, Stephen Bronfman, and later on, Molsons. At the end of the process last week, many of those investors pulled back and only two offers were interesting enough for Gillett. Gillett decided to take the offer from the Molson family a couple of days ago. Estimate 550 million represents great value and great profit for American businessmen The Montreal Canadiens are once again tied to the Molson family. Since 1957, we can trace ties between Molsons and the Montreal Canadiens Hockey Club. That year, famous Senator Hartland Molson and his brother Thomas bought the Montreal Canadiens and the Canadian Arena Company. The Senator has been seen on television for years in his seat, sitting and holding his cane, watching over just behind the Canadiens' bench. In 1964, David, William and Peter Molson, who were cousins with Senator and his brother, bought Club for about 5 million. The Molson brothers sold Club and Canadian Arena Company in 1971 to the Bronfman family of Montreal for 15 million, and the Bronfman family sold Club to Molson brewery this time, and only seven years later. The Molson family was once again tied to the Club. The Brewery owned the Canadiens for 30 years—from 1971 to 2001. During that time, Club moved from the legendary Montreal Forum to the modern Molson Centre. Gillett bought 80. 1 percent of packages in 2001. I am delighted to see Molsons back in control. Their passion for sport and Club is genuine, and it can only translate into better results on ice as time goes by. As for head coach Jacques Martin, General Manager Bob Gainey, and Club President Pierre Boivin, they will keep their jobs for the 2009 NHL Entry Draft that will be hosted by Montreal at the end of this week.
