'Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day' isn't just a one-off with the Canadiens

MONTREAL - When you're on the road as much as the Habs are during the season, it's important to spend quality time with family whenever possible.

Claude Julien's players and their significant others make a point of doing just that all season long by bringing their kids out to the Bell Centre - or even on the occasional trek away from the rink.

In other words, 'Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day' - which takes place on the fourth Thursday in April each year - isn't just a one-off with the Canadiens.

Over the course of the 2018-19 campaign, we collected some absolutely adorable images and videos of the Habs' youngsters at the Bell Centre and elsewhere.

Let's kick things off with young Andy Shaw taking in her very first NHL game as the Canadiens battled the Maple Leafs on October 3 at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto.

She proved to be her dad's good luck charm on opening night as the two-time Stanley Cup champion scored a power play goal.

When the Canadiens returned home, Jeff Petry's adorable sons got a good workout in ahead of a 4-3 shootout victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on October 13.

Paul Byron's daughter, Elianna, was all smiles before watching her father score a goal in a 7-3 triumph over the Detroit Red Wings on October 17.

Shea Weber's children, Beckette and Kenley, took in the warmup ahead of the Canadiens' tilt against the Carolina Hurricanes on November 27. It marked the Habs' captain's first game of the year following offseason surgery.

There were plenty of kids in attendance when the Canadiens' wives and girlfriends wrapped gifts as part of Opération Père Noël on December 15.

On New Year's Eve, the Petry boys were in Texas to watch the Canadiens close out the calendar year with a 3-2 overtime win over Dallas. Their proud papa was the man responsible for settling the score in the extra frame.

On January 16, several children took part in a photoshoot in conjunction with the launch of the brand new CHic Collection by Angela Price and Julie Petry.

Who can forget this special moment between Carey Price and his eldest daughter, Liv, on January 19? It has become a staple of Price's routine during the pre-game warmup.

The next day, kids aplenty turned out for the Canadiens Skills Competition presented by RONA.

A few weeks later, Liv was center stage when the seven-time All-Star was presented with the Molson Cup.

On March 16, Liv and her baby sister, Millie, were in attendance to participate in a pre-game ceremony honoring their dad for becoming the winningest goaltender in franchise history.

Team Photo Day on March 22 provided the perfect opportunity for Julien's troops to have their children on-site for a rare Bell Centre practice.

Had a great time at team picture day! ❤😍
