CANADIENS BRINGING BACK FOUR FORMER PLAYERS AS TEAM AMBASSADORS

JUL 6, 2022  (14H40)      COOPER GODIN
The Montreal Canadiens announced on Wednesday that they've brought back Guy Carbonneau, Vincent Damphousse, Patrice Brisebois and Chris Nilan as team ambassadors, joining Yvan Cournoyer and Rejean Houle. The six former Habs players will officially represent the team at games and events throughout the Montreal area.

"We are incredibly proud to formally add Guy, Vincent, Patrice and Chris to the list of legendary names who have worked for our organization as ambassadors following their playing careers," said Canadiens owner Geoff Molson.

Molson added, "Some of the greatest legends in our history - including Jean Beliveau, Henri Richard, and of course Guy Lafleur - all represented us with generosity and grace in this role, and we couldn't be happier to welcome this next generation of impressive individuals to carry the torch passed by those who came before them."

Carbonneau, 62, spent parts of thirteen seasons with the Montreal Canadiens from 1980 to 1994, winning the Stanley Cup in 1986 and 1993. In 2019, he was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Damphousse, 54, was with the Canadiens for parts of seven seasons in the 1990s, winning the Stanley Cup with them in 1993.

Brisebois, 51, spent sixteen of his eighteen seasons in the NHL with Montreal after they drafted him in the second round in 1989. As with Carbonneau and Damphousse, Brisbois won the Stanley Cup in 1993 with the Canadiens.

Finally, Nilan, 64, was drafted by the Canadiens in the nineteenth round in 1978. He went on to play parts of ten seasons for Montreal, winning the Stanley Cup in 1986 and amassing 2,248 penalty minutes.

Since Kent Hughes was brought in as General Manager, it seems that he, alongside ownership, are wanting to connect the organization with the past once again and this proves that. Late in the season, Hughes and Molson held a dinner for Canadiens alumni to, as mentioned, reconnect the past with the present.
