CANADIENS magazine: An oral history

A lot of hockey history has flowed through the pages of CANADIENS magazine since the first issue hit newsstands in the fall of 1985. Two Stanley Cup celebrations, the closing of an iconic arena, a historic Centennial, countless players making their NHL debuts, and others saying their final farewells. Over the last three decades, the magazine has been there to commemorate those big moments, celebrate the daily victories, provide levity, and shed some light on the players’ personal lives and personalities.

Did you know?

While we could have filled an entire magazine with quick hits from issues past, we instead curated a list of a few of our favorite nuggets to help you, our reader, discover – or rather, re-discover – more about your favorite former and current Canadiens.


Cover Boys

Over the course of CANADIENS magazine’s 30 years of existence, 145 players, coaches, and managers have been featured on its cover. Some of those players-turned-cover models have made more appearances on the front of this illustrious publication than others, but whether they made the front page once or a half-dozen times, they all admit they felt honored to have been asked to pose for our cameras. We caught up with some of our former cover boys, had them flip through their old issues and watched the memories come flooding back.


Roll Call

When CANADIENS magazine underwent a complete redesign process ahead of the 2006-07 season, we took the opportunity to add a bevy of new features to the content mix. One of the more popular of those features was “The Last Word,” an irreverent Q & A with a celebrity outside the world of hockey that closed out each issue. Over the last decade, we’ve been catching up with actors, musicians, Olympians, celebrity chefs, iconic wrestlers, and everyone in between to dish on everything from their lives on set and in the studio to their love of hockey and the Habs. Here’s a look at the impressive list of celebs who have graced our pages and covers over the years.
