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 teams 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.

The National Hockey Association was professional ice hockey organization with teams in Ontario and Quebec, Canada. It was from this League that the current National Hockey League has it's roots. In 1909, senior Amateur League operating in Central Canada, was the Eastern Canada Amateur Hockey Association, consisting of Quebec Bulldogs, Ottawa Senators, Montreal Shamrocks and Montreal Wanderers. On November 24 1909, the League was dissolved with the immediate formation of the Canadian Hockey Association. The new team, Montreal Nationals, were admitted but Montreal Wanderers were not. A Meeting of Montreal Wanderers and Renfrew was called for December 2 1909. From this meeting, a new League was form, namely the National Hockey Association. Franchises were granted to Renfrew, Haileybury, Cobalt and Montreal Wanderers. The National Hockey Association played it's first Game on January 5 1910, with the Cobalt Silver Kings playing the Montreal Canadiens in Montreal. On January 18 1910, the Canadian Hockey Association was disband. The National Hockey Association was reorganized with the addition of the Ottawa Senators and Montreal Shamrocks. In move design to attract fans and help owners make money, NHA governors decided to change the rules of hockey. NHA changed the timing of the game. Before 1910, teams played in two 30-minutes halves; governors introduced the idea of three 20-minute periods, so fans would have more opportunities to stretch their legs and visit the concession stand at NHA Arenas. After completion of the first season, rulemakers made another major change to Game. Up until 1911, hockey had always been played seven-aside. Each team plays with a goalie, two defencemen, centre, right wing, left wing and a rover who covers as much of ice as he can. To make games faster, League decided fewer players were needed on ice, and rovers were eliminate. At the end of the 1913-14 season, an agreement between the Pacific Coast Hockey Association and NHA saw the Stanley Cup awarded to the winner of the championship series between two League winners. In 1916, the NHA consisted of six teams, was in a wartime situation and faced a shortage of skilled players. The Toronto 228 Battalion team was shipped overseas to War at mid-season with the resulting meeting of owners leading to the disbanding of the Toronto Blueshirts. The owner of the team, Eddie Livingstone, along with Percy Quinn, attempted to form a new League in the summer of 1917, called the Canadian Hockey Association. In November 1917, the NHA board announced that due to a shortage of players they were suspending the League for that season. Ottawa, Quebec, Two Montreal franchises and the owners of Toronto Arena Company met separately and discussions about the New League, less Toronto owner Livingstone were discuss. On November 26 1917, the National Hockey League was announce, including franchises in Quebec, Ottawa, 2 in Montreal and the New Toronto franchise.

At the time of the League's founding in 1910, Eastern Canada Hockey Association, which dated from 1906 and was itself a successor to the first recognized major Hockey League, Amateur Hockey Association of Canada, was in the midst of a political battle. In an effort to freeze out the Montreal Wanderers franchise, ECHA disbanded and new League form to be called Canadian Hockey Association, deliberately designed to exclude Wanderers. After numerous rejections and snubs from the ECHA, Ambrose o'brien and his father, Michael J. O'brien, created their own League, calling it the National Hockey Association. O'briens finance four teams in the League: Renfrew Creamery Kings, which become known as Renfrew Millionaires, Cobalt, Haileybury and Les Canadiens of Montreal. Within month, Montreal Wanderers also joined to become the fifth team. A bidding war for players immediately start, and Frank Patrick and Lester Patrick were each signed by Renfrew Millionaires for $3 000 apiece, highest salaries record to that time. It become readily apparent that two leagues could not be sustain-there were five teams in Montreal alone-and after eight games, CHA fold, Ottawa Senators and Montreal Shamrocks were admitted to the NHA. Labour unrest was a hallmark of the League, 1910-1911 season almost foundering because of widespread dissatisfaction amongst players at salaries on offer, and players' unions were rumor to be on the verge of creation at several points. However, League put forth several innovations, among them abolition of rover position in 1912, inclusion of numbers on jerseys, institution of match penalties and allowing line changes on fly. The Championship Trophy of NHA was the o'brien Trophy, donated by the o'brien family and which survived to become the championship Trophy of the NHL. However, as Ottawa Senators join League as reigning Stanley Cup champions, first five seasons of the League had Cup award to League champions, who then defend it against outside challenges. Starting in the 1914-1915 season, Stanley Cup was awarded exclusively to the winner of playoff between NHA and PCHA regular season winners. The League championship was decided by a two-game total goal playoff between Wanderers and Senators. Ottawa won the championship, and the right to defend the Cup against Vancouver in a three game series in which Vancouver won in dominating fashion. The notion of the League champion being awarded Cup to defend cease with that season, as Portland Rosebuds were PCHA champions in 1915-1916 but were not automatically accorded Cup. Instead, they play Montreal Canadiens for the Trophy, which the Canadiens won in five game series.

In 1950, team found themselves stranded in London after their plane back to Paris could not leave due to adverse weather conditions. The team take to a pub and spent many hours drinking, but what they didnt know was the pub was full of undercover police officers. A fight break out, and in an era of fear, these players were considered to be threat and arrested on the spot. When players return to Czechoslovakia, they are subject to a show trial organised by communists. Vaclav Rozinak got ten years in prison, while ten others got sentences ranging from one to fifteen years. These sentences are said to have been given out of fear that the whole team might have emigrate to England, pleading for asylum. In 1955, players were released under amnesty and were officially rehabilitate in 1968. But seven players die later in force labour camps. In the mid-1950s, Russian squad won gold for the first time in Stockholm, precursor of their domination for the next thirty years. Today, Czechs are enjoying a golden period unrivaled in the countrys history.

The plane crash

The first season of the National Hockey League starts with the MONTREAL Canadiens meeting Ottawa Senators and MONTREAL Wanderers meeting Toronto Arenas. Joe Malone, Canadiens hockey player, scored five goals during this first match against the Senators, including his first goal for his team in the NHL. See Birth of National Hockey League MONTREAL Canadiens Hall-of-Famer Richard Dickie Moore was born in MONTREAL, QC. Moore played left wing for the Habs from 1951 to 1963, winning six Stanley Cup Championships as part of a legendary lineup that included Maurice Rocket Richard, Henri Richard and Jean Beliveau. The leading scorer in the NHL of his era, Moore won the Art Ross Trophy two years in Row. Hockey Great Frank Big M Mahovlich was born in Timmins, ON. Mahovlich joined the Maple Leafs in 1957, taking the Calder Trophy for best rookie. Know for his power-skating and booming slap shot, he was a key component in the Leafs' four Stanley Cup victories in the 1960s. Mahovlich was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1981, and appointed to the Senate in June 1998. He retire in 2013. Bill Barilko of the Toronto Maple Leafs scored in last game of his life in the first overtime period against the MONTREAL Canadiens, winning the Stanley Cup for the Leafs. He perished in a plane crash shortly after and his body was only recovered 11 years later. Ironically, Leafs did not win another Cup until the year after his body was find. Though House Leader Nelson Riis demanding the government block trade, Wayne Gretzky was traded from Edmonton to Los Angeles. The Great One leaves the Oilers along with defenceman Marty McSorley and Centre Mike Krushelnyski. Gretzky would lead the Kings to their first Stanley Cup final in 1993. Trade was the driving force behind the NHL's expansion into such non-traditional hockey markets as Arizona. In the remaining seconds of the NHL Hockey match, Boston Bruins' Marty McSorely delivered a crushing head blow to Donald Brashear of the Vancouver Canucks. McSorely faced jail time, first for an incident during an NHL game. He received 18 months' probation and suspension from the NHL. That marked the end of his career in the League. Hit is widely regarded as one of the most disgraceful hits in NHL history. MONTREAL Canadiens goalie Carey Price received the Hart Trophy, Vezina Trophy, and Ted Lindsay Award. In April 2015, he won the William M. Jennings Trophy for allowing the fewest goals in regular season play, which he shared with Corey Crawford. Price is the first goalie in NHL history to win those four awards, and the second Canadiens player to win four NHL awards. MONTREAL Canadiens goaltender Carey Price won the Lou Marsh Trophy, given annually to Canada's top athlete as determined by a jury of Canadian sports writers. He is the first goalie to ever win an award.
