by Montreal Canadiens @CanadiensMTL / News release

MONTREAL - A strong advocate of women's hockey, the Montreal Canadiens Hockey Club shares the disappointment of many with the decision of the CWHL to discontinue its operations. Through our involvement with Les Canadiennes in recent years, we have been committed to the development and the growth of women's hockey and we are determined to pursue all opportunities to ensure that talented players can continue to play the game they love.

We recognize the importance of women's hockey in our country and the passion players have for the game and we value their presence as role models for the next generation of players.
