Alex Kovalev is ready for a nap in his jammies-like jersey, a replica of what the Canadiens wore for part of 1912-13 – until the Ottawa Senators complained. It is one of the special throwback jerseys the club will wear during their centennial season.
The Canadiens are making a very big deal out their centennial. And why the heck not? Turning 100 isn’t a bad thing – especially when you have a rich history to celebrate.
Among the highlights will be the vintage jerseys the club will wear on select nights throughout the season. Check out the Canadiens official site for more on the centennial celebrations, and more on these great unis. And read on below for a primer on the sweaters the team has worn through the decades
