A-listers: These celebrities are Montreal Canadiens fans

Jul 13 2022, 7:00 pm

The Montreal Canadiens are one of the most storied franchises in all of sports so it’s no surprise that they have an A-list of celebrity fans.

It’s an exciting time to be a Canadiens fan, having just cemented the number one overall pick in this year’s NHL Entry Draft and adding him to a young (and experienced core) of Cole Caufield and Nick Suzuki, along with longtime fan-favourites Brendan Gallagher and Carey Price.

As the Canadiens set their sights on winning the franchise’s 25th championship, we’re highlighting some of the team’s most famous fans.

Viggo Mortensen


Aragorn himself is a Habs fan. According to Reddit, the American actor wore a Habs jersey under his armour while filming theĀ Lord of the RingsĀ trilogy.

Mortensen also introduced one of his idols, Guy Lafleur, to a Bell Centre crowd during the Habs’ 100th anniversary season.
