Here are some interesting facts about the Montreal Canadiens:
The franchise was founded in 1909 and is the longest continuously operating professional ice hockey team in the world. They are also the only existing National Hockey League (NHL) club that predated the founding of the NHL as they played in the National Hockey Association (NHA) from 1910 – 1917. The Montreal Canadiens then began play in the NHL when the NHL was founded in 1917. The team is also one of the oldest North American professional sports franchises. The Canadiens are one of the “Original Six” teams, a description used for the teams that made up the NHL from 1942 until the 1967 expansion. The other teams in that list include the Toronto Maple Leafs, New York Rangers, Chicago Blackhawks, Detroit Red Wings and Boston Bruins.
The Montreal Canadiens logo has had fourteen logo variations, including the original design back in 1909. See the different Montreal Canadiens logo designs that they have had over the years.
