History Of The Montreal Canadiens
The Montreal Canadiens are the oldest continuously operating professional ice hockey team in existence. The club was founded in 1909 which means it actually predates the founding of the National Hockey League and is one of the oldest North American sports franchises. From 1909-1917 the Candiens played in the National Hockey Association and earned two league championships in that time. They became part of the NHL following the demise of the NHA.
The Montreal Canadiens are one of the “Original Six” NHL teams that played in the league from 1942 to the first expansion year of 1967. The Canadiens have a number of French nicknames and are commonly referred to as the Habs, which is an abbreviation of one French nickname Les Habitants. The official club name is le Club de hockey Canadien and they have been based in Montreal, Quebec from their beginning.
The Canadiens have a total of twenty-four Stanley Cups which is more than any other NHL team and won twenty-two of them since 1927. That was when the only teams eligible to complete for the Cup had to be from the NHL.
The team colors are red, white and blue and the team is part of the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference.
Hockey legends that have played in Montreal include Maurice Richard (1942-1960), Jean Beliveau (1950-1971), Doug Harvey (1947-1961), Guy Lafleur (1971-1985), Howie Morenz (1923-1937), Jacques Plante (1952-1963), Patrick Roy (1984-1996), Larry Robinson (1972-1989), Henri Richard (1955-1975) and Ken Dryden (1970-1979).
The Montreal Canadiens won the National Hockey Association’s O’Brien Cup, awarded to the league champions, in 1915-1916 and 1916-1917 prior to becoming part of the NHL. They have a total of 24 Stanley Cups (1915-1916, 1923-1924, 1929-1930, 1930-1931, 1943-1944, 1945-1946, 1952-1953, 1955-1956, 1956-1957, 1957-1958, 1958-1959, 1959-1960, 1964-1965, 1965-1966, 1967-1968, 1968-1969, 1970-1971, 1972-1973, 1975-1976, 1976-1977, 1977-1978, 1978-1979, 1985-1986, 1992-1993), 8 Conference Championships and 22 Division Championships
