Education: Bialik High School Class of 2013, Dawson College Class of 2015, McGill Political Science Student. Born and raised in Montreal, the Canadiens have always been a big part of my life. What started out as a way to blow off some steam after a tough loss in the 2011 playoffs eventually became a popular hit with Facebook friends around the internet. On PGT, I like to dissect each and every Habs game and promote discussion about the team. Other interests: Aside from Hockey and sports in general, I love music. During the summer I work for Camp Wingate, a sleep-away sports camp just north of Montreal. Favourite places in Webspace: If you are looking for the latest news around the NHL, visit NHL.com For more Montreal Canadiens talk, visit Allaboutthehabs.com, or hockeyinsideout.com

Saku Koivu: Once A Hab, Always A Hab

March 12, 2012. The night Saku Koivu played his 1000th career game, but it's with the wrong team. Drafted in the first round in 1993 by the Montreal Canadiens, Koivu played 782 out of his 1000 games as a member of the organization, captaining them for a number of years. As great of a player as Koivu was on the ice, he was an even better person off of it. He founded the Saku Koivu foundation and was always involved with the community. After battling so many times with different injuries and long battle with cancer, Koivu somehow managed to always stay positive. He was such a great representative of the team and was the heart and soul of the organization ever since he arrived here. While Koivu is no longer a Hab, he always will be, in my heart, in the hearts of all Montrealers and hopefully in his heart. Congratulations to my childhood hero Saku Koivu, here's to 1000 more.

Jordie Benn

How's this for a stat; in just 29 games, Jordie Benn has already set a career high in goals with 4. That is more than all star defensemen Erik Karlsson, Brent Burns, Victor Hedman and Dustin Byfuglien... COMBINED!!

Daniel Carr

What a story this kid is. Not the biggest, not the fastest, not the most skilled, but he just has a knack for scoring goals. Since the Canadiens called him up from the Laval Rocket four games ago, Carr has amassed 6 points and is leading a very productive fourth line in Montreal.

It seems as if he has cemented his spot on the roster. Well deserved.
