We understand that the current situation affects a great number of people, including our employees, our partners and local businesses – as well as our loyal fans who patiently and enthusiastically await the arrival of each Canadiens hockey season.
Please know that it is our sincere hope that an agreement between the National Hockey League and the NHL Players’ Association is reached so that the hockey season may get underway. To this end the National Hockey League has been and remains willing to negotiate around the clock to conclude a new CBA that provides a fair system for all teams and its players, thus allowing the NHL to continue to develop and prosper long term. This is in the interest of everyone involved.
Meanwhile, the Club’s charitable efforts move forward with today’s annual Montreal Canadiens golf tournament to benefit our Children’s Foundation. We will gather with our generous partners, sponsors and numerous Canadiens Alumni in the name of helping children in need.
I want to thank each and every one of you for your understanding and your patience. I remain convinced that we have the best fans in the world.
