Canadiens fans will have a chance to meet Brandon Prust, Colby Armstrong and Brendan Gallagher – and possibly others, who might drop by at the last minute (no guarantees) – Friday from 7-8 p.m. at Le Skratch, 1875 Panama Ave. in Brossard from 7-8 p.m.
This is a bit of a “Welcome to Montreal” event organized for the fan-favourite Prust by Hockey Helps, and Armstrong and Gallagher are confirmed to be part of it.
It will cost you $8 for a Prust autograph, in keeping with his jersey number; $20 will get you signatures of both Armstrong and Gallagher. A portion of proceeds will go to two Montreal charities in the players’ names – the Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation and the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation’s Stratos Raphael Angelopoulos Fund.
There will be items up for bid in a silent auction, and former Canadien Yvon Lambert will call a live auction on site.
• PLEASE NOTE: Le Skratch is a licensed establishment and admits only those 18 years of age and older. From 6:30 to 7 p.m., a signing for those under 18 will be held at an adjacent restaurant; arrive at Le Skratch and you’ll be directed there.
