1909 Avenue des Canadiens-de-Montréal
Residence of the local NHL hockey team: les Canadiens de Montreal. If you happen to be there during a match night, the ambiance is awesome. Other major events occur at this place such as concerts, shows, etc. The building provides the latest technology and has replaced the legendary Forum de Montreal.
Outside the building, the sculptures of Hockey greats such as Guy Lafleur, Jean Beliveau, Howie Morenz and Maurice “Rocket” Richard can be seen.
The famous “Go habs Go” motto. The logo of the team sits on a stone where the yearly team statistics are engraved. Between the Windsor Station, the Bell Center and the Deloitte building is the Rio Tinto Court for which the purpose was unclear.
Some may refer to the “Centre Bell” building as the Molson Center which was its original name or even “The Forum” which was actually the previous hockey building in another area.
Hockey is very popular in Montreal, if you plan to go, I would recommend buying your tickets well in advance. The building has an impressive capacity and the atmosphere is different in Montreal.
