It can be difficult for Canadiens players to handle the pressure and spotlight cast by Montreal’s passionate fanbase and media.

The summer is their chance to relax, travel, and spend time with loved ones.

Here’s what they’ve been up to:

Carey Price

Carey Price went home to British Columbia where he’s spent time with friends, family, and teammates.

Yes, that’s actually Price playing catcher with a goalie glove.

Philip Danault

Philip Danault’s one romantic man – travelling with his fianceé to Rome and Paris before taking her hand in marriage.

So lucky to have her for the rest of my life ❤️. @oraphotographie

In between those trips and his wedding, he also hosted a charity golf tournament that raised over $50,000. Here he is pictured with Jonathan Drouin, Mark Barberio, Jonathan Huberdeau, and Marc-Edouard Vlasic.

Artturi Lehkonen

Artturi Lehkonen is home in Finland where he’s taken on a bet to challenge his childhood friend Santeri in 10 different sports. Should Lehkonen lose any competition, he’ll pay for his friend’s trip to Montreal.

The pair has gone through seven competitions thus far, with no victory in sight for Santeri.

Had fun in game 4 🐬 #ArsiVsNipa

Paul Byron

Paul Byron swapped the skates for a police cruiser, as he and his son Brysen patrolled the streets of Montreal for a day.

Speeders be warned! Got a little radar patrolman in training 👮🚨

If only he could snipe half as well playing hockey as he does playing video games.

Jacob De La Rose

Nicolas Deslauriers

Nicolas Deslauriers took time out of his summer to give back to the community by coaching kids and meeting fans.

Tomas Plekanec

I’m guessing Tomas Plekanec feels a little too old for this Instagram stuff because he’s the only player on the team to have his social media account managed by someone else.

Regardless, the 35-year-old has trained hard off the ice after representing the Czech Republic at the World Championships; working on his fitness with Canadiens’ prospects.

Plekanec has since flown to his hometown of Kladno, where he’s taken a break from his training for a meet and greet with kids at a local hockey school.

Brendan Gallagher

Brendan Gallagher took a trip down to Boston to catch a Blue Jays game at Fenway Park.

Jordie Benn
