The Montreal Canadiens have a history without parallel in all of professional hockey. You could write an entire book about the achievements of this legendary team—and, in fact, more than a few people already have. They've won the Stanley Cup two dozen times, far more than any other NHL franchise. Many of the best players in NHL history have worn Montreal Canadiens jerseys: Maurice Richard, Toe Blake, Jean Béliveau, Henri Richard, Yvan Cournoyer, Ken Dryden, Jacques Plante, Dickie Moore, Guy Lafleur, and the list goes on and on.
The Canadiens started out in the old National Hockey Association (NHA) back in 1909. Their debut season was fairly disastrous, concluding with a 2-10-0 record, but they improved rapidly. They captured their first Stanley Cup in 1916, toward the end of the NHA era. In 1917, the Canadiens became one of the four founding teams of the newly formed National Hockey League. Incidentally, the Habs also hold the honor of winning the first-ever NHL game, played against the Ottawa Senators on December 19, 1917. This was the same year that saw the arrival of the distinctive “CHC” logo (which has undergone only minor alterations since) on Montreal Canadiens jerseys. Their first Stanley Cup title as an NHL team came in 1924.
The Habs are responsible for three of the nine dynasty teams officially recognized by the National Hockey League: 1955-60 (five straight Stanley Cups), 1964-69 (four Stanley Cups in five seasons), and 1975-79 (four straight Stanley Cups). In the contemporary world, the Canadiens are still tough contenders, having won multiple division titles in recent years.
