Founded in 1909, the Canadiens are the longest continuously operating professional ice hockey team and the only existing NHL club to pre-date the founding of the NHL, as well as one of the oldest North American sports franchises. The franchise is one of the “Original Six” teams, a description used for the teams that made up the NHL from 1942 until the 1967 expansion. Following the departure of the rival Quebec Nordiques in 1995, and the relocation of the Montreal Expos to Washington, D.C. in 2004, the Canadiens remain the sole team of the four major sports leagues of Canada and the United States that is based in the province of Quebec. The Canadiens have won the Stanley Cup more times than any other franchise. They have won 24 championships, 22 of them since 1927, when NHL teams became the only ones to compete for the Stanley Cup. On a percentage basis, the Canadiens is one of the most successful professional sports teams of the traditional four major sports of Canada and the United States. Since 1996, the Canadiens have played their home games at the Bell Centre.
