LAVAL – Captain Max Pacioretty, some of his Canadiens teammates, and local celebrities were on site at the Islesmere Golf Club on Tuesday for a tournament organized by No. 67 to raise funds for both the Montreal Canadiens Children's Foundation and the Max Pacioretty Foundation.
Sven Andrighetto, Mark Barberio, David Desharnais and Stefan Matteau were among the players in attendance, as was head coach Michel Therrien, general manager Marc Bergevin, assistant coach Daniel Lacroix, goaltending coach Stephane Waite, and 2014 first-rounder Nikita Scherbak.
Pacioretty, Andrighetto and Barberio met with members of the media prior to hitting the golf course. Both Andrighetto and Barberio signed new contracts with the Canadiens in June, and they reiterated their intent to secure full-time roster spots in Montreal in 2016-17.
For his part, Pacioretty discussed his involvement with the Montreal General Hospital Foundation, the best and worst golfers on the team, and his ongoing preparation for the World Cup of Hockey.
