November is here and so are the 'staches, as the month-long campaign to raise awareness and funds for prostate cancer known as Movember has begun. Montreal becomes moustache heaven during the month of November (even more than usual) with tons of special Movember parties and events, notably Boris Beer's special contest, where your 'stache can win you a free Hockey game in a lodge with 11 of your friends.
And we're not talking plain old tickets to a game, which would be awesome on it's own. No, Boris is giving you the swankiest Hockey experience ever, as you stand to win a full-on party in a lodge for you and 11 friends, with free food and Boris for you all to eat and drink, a value of $4,000. All of that, and all you need to do is take a single picture.
Boris Beer's free Hockey game contest runs until November 30th, though you'll want to get in on it early. To enter, upload your pic on the special section of Boris Beer's Facebook page and add a moustache and you're in the running.
But the contest doesn't end there. All photos submitted will be in the gunning for the title of "Montreal's best muostache" with the winner getting the free (and hella swanky) hockey game experience. The photo with the most likes will be awarded the prestigious title and sweet prize, so make sure to share your photo across your network to get the most exposure possible.
A second and third place will also be awarded, with the runner up getting a $1, 000 gift card to Best Buy and third place winning a Boris mini-fridge stocked with Boris beers. Tons of tech and free beer are pretty solid prizes, though we all really want that top spot/hockey game.
Start getting those likes right now and post your Movember selfie on Boris Beer's Facebook page and you could be the happy winner of a free lodge hockey game party. As an added bonus, for every like that the winning photo gets, Boris Beer will donate $1 towards the fight to end prostate cancer, until they hit $5,000.
Forwards Paul Byron, Mike Hoffman, Joel Teasdale, defenseman Josh Brook, and goaltender Carey Price all failed their medicals and are probably out until the start of the regular season.
Defenceman Joel Edmundson is listed with a day-to-day injury and might rejoin the team in the coming days.
Meanwhile, Habs forward Brendan Gallagher was absent for "family reasons" and will return to camp soon.
There's a palpable sense of excitement going into the new season. With a re-tooled team, a bunch of new players, and a new plan of action from head coach Dominique Ducharme, the Habs are looking fresh and capable.
Whether or not they'll make the Stanely Cup Finals again this season is highly debatable, but you best believe the boys will give it their best shot.
In what can only be described as the ultimate fine dining experience, Tampa Bay Lightning player and Montrealer Mathieu Joseph brought the Stanley Cup to Montréal-Nord this weekend and ate a giant poutine out of it.
Hockey's holy chalice has had many things in it from beer to a baptized baby but never poutine — at least as far as we can tell!
Now that’s fine dining. 🏆🤌
Perry, an unrestricted free agent, signed a two-year, $2 million deal with the Lightning, the team he's lost against for the Stanley Cup in the last two seasons — one with the Habs at the end of June, and another as part of the Dallas Stars in 2020.

In a July 29 Instagram post, Danault thanked Canadiens CEO Geoff Molson and general manager Marc Bergevin, as well as his wife and son. He also thanks Habs fans for their "energy and passion."
"My teammates [have] been unreal to me [the] last five years, we've been through everything and could not wish for a better group," he wrote, thanking his teammates for the memories they've created during his time on the Canadiens, including their historic Stanley Cup final run.
It's not the first time Danault has played for another NHL team. In 2011, Danault was drafted as the 26th pick for the Chicago Blackhawks before being traded to the Canadiens in 2016.
The Quebec native was known for his tradition of eating pizza after Habs wins. We'll miss you, 24!
