The Verdun Messager (translated) announces that Verdun will build a community ice rink issued from the blue white and red Canadiens foundation for the youth. It will be part of the project already started at the Willibrord Park. The rink having NHL dimensions will have a refrigerated surface, and will allow the practice of other sports such as basketball and soccer, as well as other activities from spring to fall.
The Hockey Canada foundation will make a donation to the rink project wich will be built in the spring of 2010. Many talented players wich evolved with the Montréal Canadiens were born and learnt hockey in Verdun.
You may recall the list of professional players from Verdun wich I posted on the old site a while back. I am including the list again for those who may not have seen it.
