Habs alumni to play County greats

Montreal Canadiens alumni will take to the ice at the Wellington and District Community Centre to play a team made up of County Greats on Sunday, March 4 – and they’re looking for a few locals to join their team.
Coached by Guy LaFleur, the alumni team may include Patrice Brisebois, Stephane Richer, Sergio Momesso and many more.
The Habs are also looking for some locals to join their team for the day, in particular one forward, one defenceman and a trainer. To have one of these top line positions you can bid in an on-line auction. Log onto and place your bid to play or help out the bench staff.  Bidding will close Feb. 27 at 4pm. The winning bidders will be contacted afterward with the details of the game.
“If being on the team isn’t for you, that’s OK,” said Recreation, Parks and Culture (RPC) Commissioner Barry Braun. “You can get involved as a sponsor for the event or just come out to see some great hockey. Mayor Mertens will drop the puck at 2:00 p.m.”
The Game Sponsor comes at a cost of $2,000. Period sponsors, power play, penalty kill sponsors and bench sponsors are $300 each. Information on the sponsorship program and the benefits of each level can be found at
The Habs schedule for their day in the County includes a Meet & Greet Brunch with their County opposition at 11 am. From 11:30am-12:30pm, the Habs will be available for autographs and photos.

    When will the roster for the County Greats be released? Will the event be streamed on the net for those of us now out west? Sure hope so. It looks like it’ll be a gas!
