Montreal Canadiens Hall of Fame Preview

The most storied franchise in the National Hockey League has decided that it needs its own hall of fame. Over the 101 years of the Montreal Canadiens a ton of all-star players have worn the uniform and contributed to making it the winningest franchise in the NHL. Plenty of stories and riveting moments have happened. It is only logical that the team would decide to honor those players and memories by opening its own hall of fame.

Presented by Loto-Quebec the Montreal Canadiens Hall of Fame opened during the 2009-10 hockey season. It is comprised of wall-to-wall memorabilia and archival matter throughout its 10,000 square acres. There are not only things you can look at, but also interactive displays. These items retell the story of the most famous of hockey teams. Walking through the Hall of Fame you will learn about the Stanley Cups, the great rivalries, and star players like Jean Beliveau, Patrick Roy and Guy Lafleur. The highlights are probably the recreation of the 1976-77 Canadiens' dressing room and a train car like the team would have traveled on in the 1950s.

This all adds up to a must-see for Montreal Canadiens' and hockey fans.
