Weber sighting, Perreault double-fisting? at Canadiens outing on MNF



It may be a “long shot” that he’ll ever play again, but it wasn’t a long trip from Kelowna down to Seattle for Montreal Canadiens captain Shea Weber.

It was confirmed yesterday that the man dubbed “Dad” by his teammates would hook up with them in the Pacific Northwest ahead of the Habs inaugural game against the Kraken tonight.

Will Weber be able to tell his teammates exactly what’s been going wrong during their 1-5 start to the season? Highly unlikely. But like Mathieu Perreault’s natural hat-trick on Saturday night to give his team their first win of the season, Weber’s presence will add to the good vibes surrounding the Montreal Canadiens the past 72 hours.

In another effort to boost team morale, the boys hung out at Lumen Field to watch the Seahawks host the New Orleans Saints on Monday Night football. Although the weather and the game weren’t great (13-10, yuck), the Habs appeared to be in good enough spirits.

Well, Cole Caufield at least.

On the left, there’s the man mountain himself Weber in between Artturi Lehkonen and Ben Chiarot with Caufield and Tyler Toffoli hanging out on the end. While on the right, Perreault is still living it up after his incredible Saturday night at the Bell Centre. Sources cannot confirm whether he is double-fisting at the game (respect) or bringing some beer to a thirsty teammate.

Perhaps to Jonathan Drouin.

Drouin has been one of the stories of the season so far for the Montreal Canadiens. Although the team has struggled, he has played some exemplary hockey and leads the club with five points in six games. Sources cannot confirm whether he is in fact a Seahawks fan. Although the fact that he is decked out head-to-toe in Seattle garb unlike his teammates would suggest it’s possible.

We are still waiting confirmation on whether notorious Cincinnati Bengals fan Brendan Gallagher wore the black and orange to a game that his team played no part in. Which would be a big faux pas.

Clearly the Montreal Canadiens are enjoying their first trip to Seattle as a team. They will take on the 1-4-1 Kraken for the first time ever tonight.
