Habby Birthday Tommy!

by Staff Writer / Montréal Canadiens
MONTREAL -- Exactly 24 years ago today in Thunder Bay, ON, Nelson and Kathie Pyatt received the greatest Valentine’s Day gift of all – a new-born baby boy named Tom.  As the Habs’ birthday boy gets set to blow out the candles and welcome Cupid today, why not take a minute to see what else has gone down on this date in history.

The Year of the Rabbit
Tom Pyatt can consider himself luck y to have been born a rabbit according to the Chinese zodiac.. People born in the Year of the Rabbit are articulate, talented, and ambitious. They are virtuous, reserved, and have excellent taste. Rabbit people are admired trusted, and are often financially lucky. The Rabbit is quite keen and pays close attention to the situations developing around him. He is intelligent and quick and can talk himself in or out of most situations with no problem.

With the news breaking recently that Zodiac signs may or may not have changed, we couldn’t decide what traits Tom really possesses based on the stars. Is he still the same old Aquarius he’s always been, or is it time for Pysie to embrace his alleged-Capricornious-ness at age 24?
