Montreal Canadiens unveil new 2015-16 jersey
Jersey worn for first time by Noah Juulsen at 2015 NHL Entry Draft


Montreal Canadiens PRESS RELEASE


MONTREAL – The Montreal Canadiens unveiled Friday their new jersey design for the 2015-16 season. The jersey debuted on stage at the 2015 NHL Entry Draft held in Sunrise, FL, when it was presented to the team’s first-round selection, Everett Silvertips defenseman Noah Juulsen. The changes to the jersey are the first since 2007 and the most extensive made to the iconic sweater in more than 40 years.

The team’s new jersey will be similar to that first worn by the Canadiens from 1941 to 1945 and then from 1946 through 1974 – a period in which the club laid claim to 13 Stanley Cup Championships – with several notable differences. Four brass hexagonal eyelets and white laces will be reintroduced around the collar, which will also revert to pure white in color. On the team’s red home jersey, the French “LNH” logo will be stitched at the nape of the neck, an homage to the roots of the franchise and the lone exception to the “NHL” visible on all other jerseys across the League.

“We are honored to have one of the most recognized and storied jerseys in all of sport, and we could never imagine altering the logo or anything but the smallest details,” said team owner, President, and CEO, Geoff Molson. “The changes we are introducing here serve simply to better connect the teams and players of today and tomorrow to those greats of the past. We are excited to see the talent on our current club don a similar sweater to that worn by so many legends including Maurice Richard, Jean Beliveau, Ken Dryden, and countless others, and hope that someday they, too, will hoist the Stanley Cup and bring its glory back to Montreal.”

The new Canadiens jersey is available for pre-order now via retailer Tricolore Sports, online at and at the main store located at the Bell Centre. Jerseys ordered by August 31 will be delivered in a custom box with several bonus pieces by the team’s first preseason game on September 22.

Michael has been a hockey fan and a Habs fans pretty much all his life, so for the last two decades and a half.

His objective in writing is to give information and to give his opinion. At no point will he try to act as an expert on the subject. Michael is humbled to be able to write on hockey and that has always been a dream for him. He attends a lot of hockey games and practices during the year (Habs, Juniors etc.) and when he is not at the game, he is watching them at home, so he will base his opinion a lot on what he has actually seen rather than what he has heard. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Michael est un chroniqueur pour Le Magazine All Habs. Il a complété un baccalauréat spécialisé en Psychologie à l'Université de Montréal et il est maintenant, à sa première année en maîtrise en Sciences Cliniques à l'Université de Sherbrooke. Michael a été un amateur de hockey et un partisan des Canadiens depuis les vingt-cinq dernières années. Il parle quotidiennement en français, en anglais et en cantonais. Il comprend aussi l'espagnol et le mandarin sans être très fluide. Michael a appris que la modestie et le respect étaient deux valeurs nécessaires dans la vie. Son approche pour écrire des articles est de donner son opinion basée sur de l'information concrète. Son but n'est surtout pas de se prendre pour un expert. Il assiste très souvent à des matchs de hockey (Canadiens, Juniors, etc.) et lorsqu'il n'est pas dans les estrades, il les regarde chez lui. Donc, son opinion sera basée sur ce qu'il aura vu, plus que ce qu'il aurait entendu. Donc, ses articles ne seront jamais écrits sous le point de vue d'un expert, mais bien celui d'un amateur qui veut susciter la discussion avec ses pairs.
