Update Regarding Bob Hartley Rumour.


  • Social media is buzzing thanks to Georges Laraque and his latest claims.
  • The 91.9fm radio host and former Habs’ forward reported that Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin met with Bob Hartley in Russia in regards to the Canadiens’ head coaching job.
  • While it’s confirmed that Bergevin is currently in Russia to meet with with Alexander Romanov and his agents, the Hartley story might just be that, a story.
  • KHL insider Aivis Kalnins reports that he can 100% confirm there was no meeting at all between Hartley and Bergevin.

  • Another KHL insider, Igor Eronko, reports that Hartley isn’t even in Moscow at the moment and his team is on a road trip and won’t be back until December 5.
  • Montreal Canadiens Director of Public Relations, Paul Wilson, also denied the rumour yesterday with a tweet.

  • Looks like Laraque might have to check his sources.
