It's been a good few weeks for Quebec NHL player Nicolas Aubé-Kubel, who won (and dropped) the Stanley Cup, presumably did some extended subsequent celebrating, and then capped it off by proposing to his girlfriend against a backdrop of 4th-of-July fireworks.

Aubé-Kubel shared the news via an appropriately memorable Instagram post, in which the first photo shows him on one knee in front of his girlfriend, Madison Fidler, backlit by exploding fireworks. (The second photo shows the couple kissing, so presumably Fidler said yes.)

The Colorado Avalanche clinched the Stanley Cup finals on Sunday night, defeating defending champions the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 5. Naturally, the team — including Quebec's own Nicolas Aubé-Kubel — was overjoyed.

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.

Last night something remarkable happened! For Montreal's 375th birthday, seven habs players surprised children in Verdun! Nathan Beaulieu, Andrew Shaw, Paul Byron, Max Pacioretty, David Desharnais, Philip Danault and Shea Weber decided to take kids who play hockey in alleys to an outdoor rink for some one-on-ones and games.

It was absolutely a fabulous idea that truly brought our Habs spirits up for the rest of the season and the future Stanley Cup! Kids of all ages were surprised and asked to join in on all the fun! I can only imagine the smiles on their faces.

Last night was a thing of beauty, considering the Montreal Canadiens won their home opener as well as their record breaking 5th straight win to start a season and to top it all off the "possible" next Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau showed up to McLean's Pub on Peel street to watch the Habs game, drink beer and take photos with fans.
