Habby Birthday Carey!

by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens
MONTREAL - Exactly 23 years ago today, Lynda and Jerry Price were swaddling their new bundle of joy, Carey, in blankets in Anahim Lake, BC, not knowing that their little guy was taking his first breaths on his way to NHL stardom. As the Habs’ birthday boy gets set to blow out the candles back home today, why not take a minute to see what else has gone down on this date in history.

1987 -The Year of the Rabbit
Rabbits, like their animal counterparts, are quite calm people who do not exhibit aggressive behavior and will avoid confrontation at all costs. When angry about something, a Rabbit will approach it calmly and considerately, hardly ever raising his voice or becoming visibly annoyed. The Rabbit is quite keen and pays close attention to the situations developing around him. He is intelligent and quick but Rabbits are also private individuals, a bit introverted and withdrawn. Do not misunderstand…the Rabbit is not a recluse. In fact, he is a reasonably friendly individual who enjoys the company of a group of good friends – Rabbits just like to be a part of the gang.
