“We are thrilled to be partnering with the Montreal Canadiens Alumni to bring this unique event to Cornwall,” said Janice Robinson, Facility Rental Coordinator, in a press release. “It’s going to be an exciting night of hockey and there will also be a number of interactive opportunities for superfans to get up close with their favourite Canadiens alumni.”

It’s a strong fan base for the Canadiens and there’s a close relationship between the city and the team, with Cornwall’s Newsy Lalonde being one of the original stars of the Habs.”
