MONTREAL, Feb. 17 /CNW Telbec/ - On this coming Sunday, February 21 at 1 PM, the Montréal Canadiens will give up their home ice at the Bell Centre to make way for their affiliate team, the Hamilton Bulldogs, as they duke it out with the Adirondack Phantoms in an official American Hockey League (AHL) game. A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Fondation Jean-Michel Anctil, whose mission is to reduce the school drop-out rate and to encourage young people to continue with their studies. The last appearance of the Bulldogs in Montréal on November 6, 2009 against the Binghamton Senators was greeted by an enthusiastic crowd of over 14 700 people who filled the Bell Centre. For the upcoming game on February 21, organizers are expecting well over 15 000 fans to cheer on their team!
