The 1909-10 Canadiens

The Montreal Canadiens (French: Les Canadiens de Montréal) are a professional ice hockey team based in Montreal. They are members of the Atlantic Division in the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League (NHL)[1] and are one of the Original Six teams of the league.[2] The club is officially known as le Club de hockey Canadien.[3] Founded in 1909, they have played a total of 113 seasons, eight with the National Hockey Association (NHA) and 105 with the NHA's successor, the NHL. They are the only club to have played every season for both leagues and the only active NHL team to pre-date the founding of that league. They have won the Stanley Cup 24 times, once under the NHA and 23 times since the founding of the NHL, and have also won 11 O'Brien Cup titles, 24 division championships, and eight conference championships. Overall they have the most games played, most wins, most ties, most points, most years in the playoffs, most division championships, and most Stanley Cup championships of any team in the NHL.[4]
