Here's How You Can Make Your Home Feel Like A Habs Game For The Rest Of Hockey Season

Among the many wonderful things that make being a Montrealer a fun and authentically Canadian experience is — you guessed it — hockey.

From its speed and tradition to, of course, its fandom, hockey is (in the opinion of most who live in the Great White North, anyway) one of the greatest sports. Montreal Canadiens fans will know this to be especially true.

But just because our hockey season may look a bit different this year, doesn't mean we can't continue to celebrate by making our homes feel like we're at a Habs game IRL.

The Montreal Canadiens want to bring the full hockey experience with Molson Export FANatic Saturdays.

Running every Saturday from April 3 to May 8, the new weekend event includes special programming and exclusive features, regardless of whether the Habs are playing at home or away. 

From celebrity Cameos to quizzes with cash prizes, these are just some of the activities Canadiens fans can look forward to.

Trivia With Michel Kunta, Presented By Ford

Every Molson Export FANatic Saturdays will kick off with a Habs-themed trivia hour from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m EST, hosted by Bell Centre's in-game host Michel Kunta, and it's all about putting your Habs knowledge to the test.

First-place winners will score a $250 gift card to, the Montreal Canadiens' official store. Second place will land a $100 gift card and third place gets a $50 gift card.

Advance registration is required so be sure to snag your spot to flex those know-it-all muscles and ultimate bragging rights.

Q&A Presented by Molson Export

Next, get ready to put those thumbs to work because after trivia is a live Twitter Q&A starting at 6:00 p.m. with special contributor Marc Dumont, formerly from The Athletic.

The session will, naturally, focus on all things Habs, acting as a "week-in-review" where fans can weigh in on what's happening with the team now (in 280 characters or less, of course).

Molson Export Reverse Retro Jersey Giveaway

Montreal Canadiens

Each Saturday one lucky fan will receive a special prize from Molson Export.

To participate, fans need to submit a question to the Q&A via Facebook or Twitter. Whichever fan has their question selected and answered by Marc during the Q&A will be Le Vrai Fan and get a retro Canadiens jersey!

A 30-Minute Guest DJ Set Live On Twitch

Montreal Canadiens

Following the Twitter Q&A is a 30-minute DJ set live on Twitch. Kickstarting the first FANatic Saturday on April 3 is DJ Special K. You can also look forward to the likes of DJ Shash'U (April 10), Pat Boogie (April 24), TIZI (May 1) and Fafa Khan (May 8).

Whatever your musical flavour, get ready to kick that pregame party into high gear because each DJ will be cranking the tunes until the puck drops.

Masked Cameos From Your Favourite Celebs

As if the game itself weren't enough to get you pumped up, each Molson Export FANatic Saturdays will showcase a surprise Cameo.

All you have to do is tune into Montreal Canadiens' social channels to catch a glimpse of the featured star cheering on the Habs.

To date, celebs like David Hasselhoff, Bob Saget, Erin Andrews and Bruce Buffer have been featured. It's anybody's guess as to who will check in with fans next, but one thing's for sure: it's always well worth the wait.
