Why do some people call the Montreal Canadians Habs?




Answers:

How do they determine which face off circle to use in hockey when a team is offsides or ices the puck?

its their nickname that was given years ago. the Montreal Canadiens real name is Le Club de Hockey Canadiens. that's what the C and H stands for Club and Hockey. the H doesn't stand for Habs in french it Habitant.

Habitants is the name used to refer to both the French settlers and the America-born inhabitants of French origin who farmed the land along the two shores of the St. Lawrence waterway in what is the present-day Province of Quebec in Canada.
