Montreal - Nov. 2, 2011 - The Montréal Canadiens' blood drive is back again this year and is taking place today, Wednesday, November 2, in the concourse of Windsor Station, at 1160 Avenue Des Canadiens-de-Montréal. Throughout the day, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., Habs players and veterans will be on hand to thank donors for their generosity.

The 2011 edition marks the 30th anniversary of this annual event held by the Habs for its fans. In recognition, Geoff Molson, President and CEO of the Montréal Canadiens, will join the players and veterans at a certain point in the day.

The Montréal Canadiens' blood drive is a big event every year, as several hundred donations are collected in a single day. Started in 1981 by Jean Béliveau, legend and star player of the Montréal Canadiens, and Claude Mouton, veteran sports commentator, the event has generated nearly 30,000 donations to date, plus those that will be made tomorrow. This great achievement is the result of the extraordinary dedication of the organizing committee, as well as the exceptional generosity of the thousands who donate blood.
