MONTREAL -- The Canadiens have been showing their appreciation for Montreal's medical professionals every evening in the most fitting way possible: with a nightly "stick tap salute" to healthcare heroes.
Tapping hockey sticks is a longstanding tradition in hockey as a way to show respect on the ice. The Habs have been using that same method to acknowledge -- and make some noise for -- the city's medical community for the tireless work they're doing to keep Montrealers healthy and safe.
Canadiens owner Geoff Molson got the ball rolling.
Veteran forwards Paul Byron and Phillip Danault were quick to follow suit. And Victor Mete gave props from his backyard.
Former Habs captain Vincent Damphousse got his kids in on the action.
Celebrity chef -- and passionate Habs fan -- Chuck Hughes got decked out in full gear for his nightly 7:00 p.m. stick tap salute to healthcare heroes.
Show your support by tapping your sticks at 7:00 p.m. every night. Share the videos with us by tagging @CanadiensMTL and #HockeySticksTogether and we'll repost them on our platforms.
