The upcoming hockey season might not be top of mind for every Habs fan in mid-July. But Ian Cobb is looking ahead to late fall–Saturday, Nov. 29th to be precise.
That’s the date of the upcoming Hockey Inside/Out summit being organized once again this year by Cobb, an HI/O member. The annual summit draws fans from far and wide who follow the team on The Gazette’s hockeyinsideout.com.
It’s the eighth summit since the website was launched in 2006. (It wasn’t held during the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season.) Plans for this year’s summit include attending the Buffalo Sabres-Canadiens game on Nov. 29th at the Bell Centre.The game will mark the return of former Canadiens’ captain Brian Gionta and defenceman Josh Gorges to the Bell Centre.
On the Friday evening at the meet-and-greet gathering people can watch the first game of the home-and-home series with the Sabres, Cobb said. Saturday’s agenda includes a pregame meal and raffle to benefit the Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation.
Close to 200 members of the HI/O community attended last year’s summit.
“Each and every year it’s grown,” Cobb said, adding “really tight bonds have developed through the site.”
