The Upper Canadien

You’ve probably already seen the television schedules that came out earlier today, but for all those Habs fans across Canada, from Carbonear to Englishman’s River, a quick recap:
15 games on TSN nationally: NHL on TSN
28 games on HNIC: HNIC 2011-2012
As a relocated Montrealer, I’m not sure I could be happier. Sure, I can watch them all on RDS, but it’s nice to have the different options. And I’m a sucker for tradition: there ain’t no hockey like Hockey Night in Canada.
So when does it all start?
It all gets going on October 6th, with Montreal facing off against Toronto. But the real season opener for many Canadian hockey fans will be October 9th, when the Canadiens visit Winnipeg for the first time in a decade and a half.
Only 6 weeks until the puck drops. Anyone else getting excited?

About The Upper Canadien
The Upper Canadien is your one stop shop for all things Montreal Canadiens. Since the summer of 2010, I've been providing Habs related news, notes, and most importantly, opinions. As a blogger, I don't believe it's my job to report the news, it's my privilege to comment on it. You may disagree with what I suggest. In fact, you most likely will. But that's the great part about blogging: it spurs opinion, comment and engages all involved. I've really enjoyed all the debate and commentary from readers thus far and I encourage everyone to respond with ideas on lineups, trades, logos, sweaters, mascots, whatever. The Upper Canadien is a conversation for all hockey fanatics.
I've come to Kukla's Korner with four years of campus radio and three years of sportswriting from my time at Mount Allison University on Canada's East coast. Not only do I not have any professional journalistic training, after five years in the corporate world, I've spent much of the past two years completing an MBA. Business by day, hockey by night, I'm a Canadiens fan through and through. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I do writing.
