All activities paused through January 6 inclusively

The Canadiens and the Laval Rocket will pause activities through next Thursday

MONTREAL — The Montreal Canadiens announced on Saturday a pause of activities as a preventive measure until January 6 inclusively. This measure also applies to the Laval Rocket’s operations at Place Bell.

“Given all the new positive cases arising daily, and for the health of our players and staff, we feel that pausing our activities is necessary at this time. This pause will give our players the time they need to recover so that we can continue the season safely,” said Canadiens Executive Vice President, Hockey Operations, Jeff Gorton.

The organization has followed, and will continue to follow, all recommendations regarding the health and safety of its players, staff, and the community, as put in place by the NHL as well as local authorities. Note that the Canadiens’ home games scheduled for January 4, 6, 8 and 10 at the Bell Centre have been postponed. Rocket games scheduled for January 5, 7, 8 at Place Bell are also postponed.
