Impact Player

Brandon Prust made a name for himself as one of the league's toughest fighters. This year he's proving he can make an even bigger impact with his gloves on.

Talk of the Town

Raphael Diaz isn't big on talking about himself. He tends to let others do that for him.

2013 Spring Style

No one sets trends in Montreal like the Canadiens, so with winter coats being stashed in favor of all things spring, we hit up three of the team's biggest stars, Brian Gionta, Max Pacioretty and Brendan Gallagher, to showcase some off-duty looks for hockey's most stylish season.

Tattoos and Tailgates with Chuck Hughes

It makes sense that if you're going to ask a celebrity chef to prepare dishes inspired by the taste of Canadiens players, you connect with a guy whose initials are ''C.H.'' In this issue, Chuck Hughes prepares seafood cavatelli for Brandon Prust.

On the Rise: Dalton Thrower

Dalton Thrower and the Saskatoon Blades have been making history all season long, and they're not done yet.

Breezy Does it

In his near two decade career in the NHL, Patrice Brisebois spanned multiple generations with the Canadiens. There isn't much the Stanley Cup champ hasn't seen over the years, so we called on the retired blue-liner and current Canadiens player development coach to share some insider info with us.

Got a question for Breezer? With luck, the man himself just might answer it. Send your question today to and it could end up featured in an upcoming issue.

The Last Word: Bret Hart

The Bell Centre has played host to countless memorable events in its existence, but few have proved as enduring as WWE (then WWF)'s 1997 Survivor Series, the show that featured the now-infamous "Montreal Screw Job" (Google it for details). The man at the middle of that controversy heard 'round the wrestling world', Bret "The Hitman" Hart has had an impact that extends far beyond the squared circle over hus three-decade career. We caught up with the 55-year-old former wrestler during his first trip back to the Bell Centre since 1997 to find out more about his legendary career and his ties to the hockey world.
