Montreal Canadiens

The Montreal Canadiens are a professional ice hockey team based in Montreal, Quebec. They are members of the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League. The club’s official name is le Club de hockey Canadian. The club’s official name is le Club de hockey Canadian. The team is frequently referred to in English and French as the Habs. French nicknames for the team include Les Canadians (or Le Canadien), Le Bleu-Blanc-Rouge, La Sainte-Flanelle, Le Tricolore, Les Glorieux (or Nos Glorieux), Le CH, Le Grand Club and Les Habitants (from which “Habs” is derived).

Founded in 1909, the Canadians are the longest continuously operating professional ice hockey team worldwide, and the only existing NHL club to predate the founding of the NHL. One of the oldest North American professional sports franchises, the Canadians’ history predates that of every other Canadian franchise outside football as well as every American franchise outside baseball and the National Football League’s Arizona Cardinals. The franchise is one of the “Original Six” teams, a description used for the teams that made up the NHL from 1942 until the 1967 expansion. The team’s championship season in 1992–93 was the last time a Canadian team won the Stanley Cup.

The Canadians have won the Stanley Cup more times than any other franchise. They have won 24 Stanley Cups, 23 of them since the founding of the NHL and 22 of them since 1927, when NHL teams became the only ones to compete for the Stanley Cup. On a percentage basis, as of 2014, the franchise has won 25.3% of all Stanley Cup championships contested after the Challenge Cup era, making it the second most successful professional sports team of the traditional four major sports of Canada and the United States, behind only the Boston Celtics.

Since 1996, the Canadians have played their home games at Bell Centre, originally known as Molson Centre.[9] The team previously played at the Montreal Forum which housed the team for seven decades and all but their first two Stanley Cup championships.
