TVA reports that Ewan Sauves, a spokesperson for Quebec Premier François Legault, has also denied the rumours.

"Regarding the increase in the number of spectators at the Bell Centre for the Stanley Cup Final, the Montreal Canadiens organization is continuing discussion with the authorities, and does not in any way confirm the rumors recently circulating on social media of an agreement between the two parties," the team's Instagram post reads.

In other news, Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante said her administration has been evaluating the possibility of setting up outdoor screenings of the Stanley Cup Final.
