What Does the C H Stand For in Montreal Canadiens?
C stands for "Canadien" and "Club," and H stands for "Hockey" in Montreal Canadiens.
It depicts the team's official name, " The Canadian Hockey Club," a literal translation of "le Club de Hockey Canadien."
Over the year, the logo of the oldest NHL franchise has changed a lot. The present logo has an outer C, inner C, and capital H. Outer C represents Club, inner C denotes Canadien, and H stands for hockey.
During the inception year, the franchise came as Club Canadien in 1909. Later it was renamed Club Athletique Canadian and used the short-form CAC in the logo.
Once again in 1914, the team logo shifted from CAC to "A" located between two Cs. Now the logo has a large C, a small, inner C, and H in the middle. The "H" always stood for hockey.
However, many people mistake it for "Habitants." The confusion arose because of the former owner of Madison Square Garden. Once in an interview, he misspoke that the alphabet meant "Habitants."
