Breaking: The Montreal Canadiens send a powerful message to Gary Bettman and make a notable announcement

The Montreal Canadiens are a symbol of class and prestige in the NHL. Despite not having clinched victory for over 30 years, the team's history speaks for itself, and the tradition of excellence is passed down through generations.

The organization places great importance on inclusive events and expresses gratitude to its fans in various ways. When attending a game at the Bell Centre, it's rare not to have something special presented, whether it's an athlete, a themed bobblehead, or something similar.

Usually, everything is done by the book, but this time, the organization is allowing itself a bit of leeway.

"The Canadiens will celebrate diversity and inclusion as part of Pride Night presented by Scotiabank on January 15!"

We know that Gary Bettman and the NHL have banned such events, but the Canadiens seem to be disregarding that. It's unclear whether they've found a loophole or if Bettman will impose a fine on the Canadiens for their defiance, but the organization has decided that the cause is too important not to act.

And that's just perfect. The Canadiens, as mentioned earlier, are a prestigious organization, and setting an example like this will undoubtedly encourage other organizations to follow suit.
