Public Enemy

Loved at the Bell Centre and loathed just about everywhere else, why is P.K. Subban the NHL's most polarizing player?

Step by Step

Maturity comes with time and experience, but Lars Eller has found a way to expedite the process.

Second Wind

Second chances can be hard to comy by. A quartet of former Habs got to live theirs this year and have taken full advantage of the opportunity.

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 jerk crab for P.K. Subban.

On the Rise: Charles Hudon

Joining the Canadiens organization is special for any player with NHL aspirations, but for a homegrown star like Charles Hudon, it means a little bit more.

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: Anthony Bourdain

There isn’t much Anthony Bourdain won’t do in the name of a good story. Travelling the world with an open mind and eager fork, the New York-born, New Jersey-bred chef/bestselling author/TV star/adventure aficionado has lived hard and eaten well during his trips around the world for shows like The Layover and Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations. In town to hang with Montreal’s culinary elite, we caught up with the badass Renaissance man to get a taste of what to expect from his new series on CNN, Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, and how our fair city ranks on the international food scene.
