Early Riser

For Alex Galchenyuk, breaking into the NHL as an 18-year-old was no mere stroke of luck. The barely-legal rising star has always been way ahead of the curve.

Natural Born Player

No matter where Jarred Tinordi spends the coming season, he knows he's on the right track to honoring his hockey bloodlines.

Work in Progress

Turning prospects into successful NHLers is a process Martin Lapointe can speak to from personal experience.

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 an all-American cheeseburger for cover boy, Alex Galchenyuk.

On the Rise: Magnus Nygren

Magnus Nygren's dream of reaching the NHL was always alive and well, but the tools to get him there would only come in time through hard work.

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: J.J. Watt

Plenty of defensive players have made their mark in the NFL, but few have had as big an impact in just two years as Justin James Watt. In his sophomore campaign last season, the 24-year-old left defensive end carved out a niche terrorizing NFL quarterbacks, helping the Houston Texans finish with the best record in their 10-year history. We caught up with the reigning Defensive Player of the Year to discover his link to hockey's most storied franchise and learn what he has in store for the current campaign.
