Former Winnipeg Jets forward Mathieu Perreault first media availability with the Habs

Hear from the popular former Jets player.

After seven years in Winnipeg forward Mathieu Perreault is returning to his home province to play for the Habs. He spoke today in his first media availability as a member of the Montreal Canadiens.

He played a total of 455 games during his time in Manitoba with the Jets (including his 600th in the NHL) compiling 88 goals and 142 assists playing up and down the lineup. Of course his most famous game might have been his four goal night where he could have scored a fifth goal and won one lucky Manitoban (Gail McDonald from Brandon) one million dollars. Gail still ended up with $100,000.00 so not exactly a bad night for her as well as a “sorry Gail” response from Perreault when he found out which was a rather classic Perreault type response.

For those curious about the language in the media availability:

First seven minutes are questions in French
then next four are in English
then it returns to French until about the 13 minute mark
and from 16 minutes till the end it is in French.
