For the greater part of the NHL, the Montreal Canadiens have been the most successful and dominant team to grace the ice. While the team has not won a Stanley Cup in over 30 seasons, Montreal’s whopping total of 24 may never be beaten and the Canadiens’ team stats is littered with the who’s who of the greatest hockey players.
It was only recently when Montreal returned to the Stanley Cup Final so we can’t ever count this team out even if the NHL odds suggest we do. Montreal has a storied rivalry with many NHL teams like Boston and Toronto, the latter of which could be the greatest in pro sports history.

Montreal Canadiens Stats & History
The Canadiens began in the National Hockey Association (NHA) from 1910 to 1917 where it won a Stanley Cup. After the NHA folded, Montreal would join the NHL and win its first of many Stanley Cups in 1924: a 2-0 series win over the Calgary Tigers. Rookie Howie Morenz would be the first of many Montreal hockey stars.
Montreal would win a trio of Stanley Cups, but would endure a decade of mediocrity until the arrival of the great Maurice “Rocket” Richard. The French-Canadian would star for his home team from 1942 to 1960 becoming the first player to score 50 goals in 50 games. Along with other legends like Jacques Plante, Richard would lead the Canadiens to six more Stanley Cups.
Richard would retire but the Canadiens were just getting started. Under general manager Sam Pollock’s guidance, Montreal would become the greatest NHL dynasty winning nine Stanley Cups between 1964 to 1978.
Pollock would trade away aging stars to draft Hall of Famers like Guy Lafleur, Larry Robinson, and Ken Dryden. The trio would set several NHL records and Montreal Canadiens stats.
In the 1980s, Montreal would no longer be a dynasty though it would still be a contender. After a few seasons of “just” making the playoffs, a rookie goaltender by the name of Patrick Roy would lead the team to a surprising Stanley Cup championship run in 1986.
The team would once again win another in 1993, which would be the 24th and final Stanley Cup Montreal would win. Roy would force his way out of Montreal in 1996 after a bad spat with coach Mario Tremblay.
Montreal would also gain new owners and move to the Molson Centre (now the Bell Centre). While still a competent team, the Canadiens would not come close to a Stanley Cup until Carey Price would carry them to the 2021 Stanley Cup Final in a losing effort.
The Canadiens are not what they once were, although throughout their history, they remain a premier franchise in the NHL.
