About Me

My photo
Michael Ziegler
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

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.
