MONTREAL -- As part of the 2009 NHL All-Star Game festivities, the Montreal Canadiens and the NHL will host the Youppi! and Friends All-Star Mascot Breakfast on January 25, 2009 at the Bell Sports Complex in Brossard.
Over 600 children from the Montreal area will be treated to a breakfast while taking in an entertaining skills competition featuring 22 of the league’s mascots as the representatives from the Eastern Conference square off against their Western Conference counterparts. After the on-ice festivities, kids will have the chance to meet the mascots, as well as Canadiens players, NHL YoungStars and Canadiens Alumni, while participating in interactive activities on the soccer field at the Bell Sports Complex.
Participating children were chosen through the Club des petits déjeuners du Quebec, a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide children with hot, nutritious meals in over 200 Quebec schools prior to the start of classes.
