Mike Weaver enjoyed everything about suiting up for the Canadiens and being a part of the Montreal community
MONTREAL - If you're looking for Mike Weaver, these days you'll find him back on home turf in Toronto. But, the former defenceman will always have a special place in his heart reserved just for Montreal.
After being acquired by the Canadiens at the trade deadline in March 2014, Weaver quickly took to the city - and the fans quickly took to him, both on and off the ice.
Almost three years years after hanging up his skates, the 40-year-old Bramalea, ON native still can't stop smiling when he thinks back to his stint with the CH.
"By far, the best thing that happened to my career was to come to Montreal. Just the whole feeling of the city, the people and the fans were just amazing. My Twitter feed went from 2,000 to 4,000 followers in a matter of hours," cracked Weaver, who always made a conscious effort to interact with the Habs' faithful on social media. "It was an amazing experience being in such a hockey town. The passion and the history is something I'm going to remember forever."
