MONTREAL – As part of the initiatives to commemorate its Centennial year, the Montreal Canadiens Hockey Club officially launched today the team’s new historical web site featuring the franchise’s rich 100-season history, the players who proudly donned the Red, White and Blue and the team’s most memorable moments that made the Canadiens the most celebrated hockey franchise in North America.
The Canadiens' historical web site is a large-scale project that came to fruition after 18 months of development with Montreal interactive agency Bluesponge and intensive research with thousands of hours of work from a team of writers. It is without a doubt the most comprehensive resource on the history of the Montreal Canadiens. For Canadiens fans and hockey enthusiasts alike, it will be a virtual encyclopedia providing answers to just about any question on the history of the franchise.
The user-friendly Dashboard allows for quick and easy navigation through an array of topics, including all 757 players who played for the Canadiens since the team first began its operations back in 1909, the 24 Stanley Cup Championships, individual awards as well as a complete team and individual statistical review for the regular season and playoffs. Among the most impressive features is the interactive timeline which provides click-on consultation on the team’s most memorable moments. With more than 3,000 photos, including a rare collection of all team photos, and in excess of 100 video clips, the Canadiens' historical web site is the most complete reference for Canadiens fans of all ages. Furthermore, the site also provides unique features on the Canadiens opponents over the years, including some of hockey’s fiercest rivalries.
