SAPUTO FUTURE CANADIENS FAN CLUB
Steve Bégin and Francis Bouillon led the charge for the Saputo Future Canadiens Fan Club during the 2005-06 season, with the two players acting as honorary captains of the program. Habs goalie Cristobal Huet and defenseman Mike Komisarek will take over as co-captains for the upcoming season. The Fan Club is aimed at children between the age of 5 and 16 years old, and offers a full slate of exclusive events and contests for participating Canadiens Fan Club members.
One special event is “Skate with the Canadiens” which allowed some 2,000 members of the Fan Club to take part in an afternoon of skating at the Bell Centre with players of the Montreal Canadiens.
Moreover, members of the Fan Club also had the opportunity to be a part of the pre-game ceremonies, thanks to the “Be Part of the Team” program, sponsored by McCain. The event allowed young fans to greet Canadiens players as they stepped onto the Bell Centre ice before a game.
