Enter the NHL

Nathan Beaulieu has finally made the Bell Centre his full-time NHL dojo.

Full House

Vacancies on the Canadiens roster this season transformed a downtown Montreal hotel into Habs HQ.

Championship Pedigree

From the moment he joined the Canadiens organization 50 years ago to his transition into an advisory role with the Chicago Blackhawks, Scotty Bowman has always known how to win.

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 - Lukas Vejdemo

Get knocked down, rise up stronger. That’s a theme that sums up Lukas Vejdemo’s last three seasons.

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: Emily VanCamp

Long before she earned starring roles in hit shows like Everwood, Brothers & Sisters, and Revenge or made the jump to the big screen in Marvel’s Captain America film series, Emily VanCamp spent some of the most important years of her life in Montreal. In addition to studying dance during her time in la Belle province, VanCamp also spent her formative years developing a deep-rooted passion for the Canadiens. We caught up with the 29-year-old Port Perry, ON native – who is set to reprise her role as Sharon Carter / Agent 13 in Captain America: Civil War in May – during a visit to the Bell Centre to find out more about her love for hockey’s most storied franchise.
