Montréal Canadiens IP

Earlier this month, I won a contest by The Gazette. I won 4 tickets for the "Skate with the Canadiens” event at the Bell Centre, which was held today. You got to skate with 1-3 player(s) of the Canadiens for 45 minutes, the tickets said. Players were not announced in advance though. Every hour there was a new group scheduled to take the ice. Our group was scheduled for 9 AM (we were the first group of the day). 3 players joined us on the ice: Brian Gionta, Hal Gill and Travis Moen. Since I didn’t know in advance who was going to be there, I had only brought 1 card for each player to sign, so here’s what I got signed:

Even if I’m not a Habs fan, it sure was a great experience to skate on the ice of the biggest arena of the NHL! :o)
