Upping the Ante

David Desharnais has gone from trying to crack the Canadiens' depth chart to sitting atop it in just one year. And he's just getting warmed up.

Seek and Destroy

Whenever Alexei Emelin is on the ice, opposing forwards enter the Canadiens' zone at their own risk.

From Heavy Metal to Heavy Hits

Like any good roommates, the Canadiens and the organization's promotional arm, evenko, have a schedule to respect when it comes to using the event floor at the Bell Centre.

Tattoos and Taligates 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 pancakes for David Desharnais.

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.

We caught up with the Cottage Grove, MN native to see how enforcer Doug Glatt’s on-ice chirps compare to those of Steve Stifler. .
