The future of the Montreal Canadiens are set to meet the future leaders of tomorrow as the Laval Rocket are scheduled to visit Pierre de Coubertin Elementary School (4700 Lavoisier) in St. Leonard on Monday, February 4 at 1:30 p.m.

The event marks the Rocket’s first ever visit to a local elementary school. Students will get to meet goalie Charlie Lindgren,  forwards Jake Evans and  Michael Pezzetta and team mascot Cosmo. The trio will be reading Roch Carrier’s classic book The Hockey Sweater to Grade 1 and 2 students before playing a ball hockey game against the vaunted Grade 5 team. 

A second visit is scheduled for Gardenview Elementary School in St. Laurent on March 11 (1:30 p.m.) at which time it is hoped Carrier will be in attendance.
