Montreal to Host 2009 Draft

The Montreal Canadiens, in conjunction with their 100th anniversary, will host the 2009 NHL Entry Draft at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

“The Montreal Canadiens are extremely proud to host the 2009 NHL Entry Draft,” said Canadiens President Pierre Boivin. “In December 2009, the Canadiens will become the first professional hockey team to celebrate a century of history. Thanks to the NHL, the Entry Draft is back in Montreal after 17 years. We are excited about this occasion, knowing the past history of the Draft and its origins in Montreal.”
