The Montreal Canadiens will indeed wear the French version of the Stanley Cup Final logo as a patch on their jerseys when the series kicks off Monday night in Tampa, Fla.

thanks to a photo Tweeted by the massage therapist of the Claude Thériault team we can see the logo sewn into the upper right corner of the Montreal house’s red sweater.

The logo itself is basically the same as the English version, a direct translation of English words to French (this causes FINALE to be placed above the text rather than below as it is in English). the French version of the NHL shield is also used, reading NHL for National Hockey League.

This is the first time that a Stanley Cup final has been played in a predominantly French-speaking city since the Canadians themselves did so in 1993. Of course, since the Nordiques moved from Quebec to Denver in 1995, Canadians the league that falls under this designation (although the Ottawa Senators consider themselves bilingual, they wore the English-language crest on their only trip to the final in 2007).

The Stanley Cup badges have been worn every year in every final round since the 1989 series between Montreal and the Calgary Flames. In this final, the Habs wore an all-English version of the 1989 logo on their shoulders; this was corrected when they reoffended four years later with an all-French version of the special crest for that year’s Stanley Cup Centennial Cup Final.

The 2021 Stanley Cup Final between the Montreal Canadiens and the Tampa Bay Lightning kicks off tomorrow (Monday) night in Tampa. The Lightning are looking to win back-to-back championships as the Canadians try to bring the Cup back to Canada for the first time in nearly thirty years.
