Win a train trip to Ottawa with Guy

First of all, a nice photo of Guy taken during the Face a Face Celebrites tournament which was held recently:

Second:  Delissio is holding another contest in which you can win a train trip from Montreal with the Canadiens legends (including Guy) to see the Habs take on the Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Place.  The contest is open only to residents of Quebec, but if you happen to be eligible, have at it here.

Finally, Habs Eyes on the Prize has a piece on the Vendredi Saint brawl (which passed its 29th anniversary on April 20th) here.

Guy in Newfoundland charity game

Recently Guy took part in the 18th annual Children's Charity Benefit Hockey Game at the Mile One Center in St. John's, Newfoundland.  Guy played on the Celebrity All-Stars team with former Habs teammate Gaston Gingras, against the Newfoundland and Labrador Police All-Stars.  The Newfoundland Autism Society, Newfoundland Tourette Syndrome Foundation, and the Newfoundland Lion's Quest School Program each received donations of $2,500.  (link)

There is a photo slideshow here and a video here.  In addition, CBC has a video on the game here, in which Guy reveals his affinity for Mexican food and admits that he'd never had fish and chips prior to his Newfoundland visit.  Wow!

Belated roundup of Guy's two recent charity tourneys

Meant to do this sooner, but life kind of got in the way.  Sorry about that.  :)

Anyhow, on March 22 Guy participated in the Hockey Helps the Homeless tourney at the Sportplexe 4 Glaces in Pierrefonds, Quebec.  $243,000 was raised for local homeless shelters.  NHL alumni included Vincent Damphousse, Stephane Richer, Karl Dykhuis, Georges Laraque, and P.J. Stock.  (link)

And on March 25 the Habs alumni took on the NHL alumni in a tilt at the Bell Centre.  Proceeds from the game benefited the Montreal Canadiens Children's Foundation.  Guy scored two goals but the Habs alumni fell to the NHL alumni, 5-3.  An interesting in-game trade was made when current Habs GM Marc Bergevin (who had been playing for the NHL alumni in his Blackhawks jersey) was traded to the Habs alumni for Chris Chelios, who then donned his Blackhawks jersey!  Also in the game playing for the Habs alumni was "L'Artiste," Alex Kovalev, who had announced his retirement just days prior to the game.  (link)   

Blog reader Anastessia Bettas sent along these pictures from the game.  Many thanks!

In addition, All Habs has a gallery from the event here.

Also, here's an article about Guy which was recently published.  If you understand French, have at it:
