Canadiens open Pre Season in Nova Scotia

  • Elsewhere in the Maritimes, the people of Salmon River, N.S., winners of the Canada-wide Kraft Hockeyville contest, will celebrate the grand prize when the Montreal Canadiens and Ottawa Senators play a pre-season game in their community on Sept. 25. The game will be played at a larger arena in neighboring Truro, allowing the maximum amount of Salmon River residents to attend the game.

    Any readers attending? The season is just around the corner.

  1. I understand that the tickets to this game are not going to be sold. I think that the rink in Truro only seats about 3000 (if that) and tickets are meant to be given away primarily to the residents of Hockeyville. For anyone interested in finding out more, I understand that more information about this game will be made available in the future on the website:

    The Salmon River rink’s telephone number is (902) 893-9651.

    They will watch montreal kill ottawa

  6. Hopefully for you fans Rivet will not play.

    To NY Islanders : Craig RIvet, Cash , 7th rounder

    TO Montreal : 6th rounder

    FAIR TRADE – although the cash part would have to be substantial.
