Down, not out

Forced to watch from the sidelines for the first time in his NHL career, Brendan Gallagher experienced a road to recovery that was anything but uneventful. 

Smart Move

When it comes to schooling his opponents on the ice, Mike Condon fittingly credits higher education for his success.

48 hours in Foxborough

From off-ice festivities to the big game on New Year’s Day, there was no shortage of excitement surrounding the 2016 NHL Winter Classic. Relive all the action through our photographer’s lens with a look back at the jam-packed two-day event at Gillette Stadium.

Tattoos and Tailgates with Chuck Hughes

It makes sense that if you’re going to ask a celebrity chef to prepare dishes to enjoy while watching a Canadiens game, you connect with a guy whose initials are “C.H.”. Watch Chuck Hughes on TV and it’s obvious the Montreal native knows his way around a kitchen; not only can he chop, sauté and braise with the best of them, but he can also hold his own on the ice. When he’s not busy running two of Montreal’s hottest eateries, Garde Manger andLe Bremner, there’s a good chance Hughes can be found at the Bell Centre taking in a Habs game. An expert in all things culinary and Canadiens, it was only natural to have the inked-up gourmand create some customized specials that any Habs fan with access to an oven could whip up and share, tailgate-style while watching the Habs run up the score.

On the Rise - Matthew Bradley

The connection between Matthew Bradley and the Montreal Canadiens began long before his selection by the Habs at the NHL Draft this past June.

Like a Boss

Having grown up at the Forum alongside some of the greatest players to ever don the bleu-blanc-rouge while enjoying a front row seat for some of the most exciting moments in Canadiens history, Geoff Molson understands what it’s like to be a die-hard Habs fan. Whether he’s in his office at the Bell Centre or in his usual seats behind the bench, the Canadiens owner and president lives and breathes hockey, 365 days a year. With a lifetime of stories at his disposal, we thought the big boss would be the perfect person to share some of his favorite memories about his childhood team. No question is too big or too small for the man at the top!

Got a question for Geoff? 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: Oscar De La Hoya

He may have hung up the gloves for good over seven years ago, but Oscar De La Hoya remains one of the biggest names in boxing. One of the greatest boxers of his generation – and arguably one of the best of all time – the “Golden Boy” remains involved in the Sweet Science on a daily basis as the founder and manager of Golden Boy Promotions, which counts Montrealer David Lemieux among its talent pool. We caught up with the 43-year-old businessman and boxing Hall-of-Famer during a recent stop in town to discuss the city’s place in the boxing world, and his thoughts on the Montreal sports scene outside the ring.
