Montreal Canadiens Jersey Tote Bag

Size – 14 inches x 14 inches x 14 inches with silk screen cresting.

Founded in 1909, the Canadiens are the longest continuously operating professional ice hockey team worldwide, and the only existing NHL club to predate the founding of the NHL.

Aren’t these cool looking – I only have a few left.

The Canadiens have won the Stanley Cup more times than any other franchise. They have won 24 championships, 22 of them since 1927, when NHL teams became the only ones to compete for the Stanley Cup.

The manufacturer are no longer producing these bags. Carry a piece of Le Bleu-Blanc-Rouge history around with you. Make a great Birthday or Christmas Gift.
