“There are two primary ways to share knowledge. You can PUSH information out, or you can PULL them in with a story.”
MONTREAL, QC. — As we know, hockey fans can find information about their favorite team from a plethora of websites. The internet is flooded by sites with scores, game summaries and basic information fed by news services — so much so, that they are barely recognizable from one another.
Another grouping of sites are the so-called ‘fast food’ pages of hockey. They offer provocative headlines, beguiling rumours and slick photos in a tabloid format. Also known as click bait, these websites drive traffic to their ads, offering limited content beyond the sensational and are usually characterized by being highly untrustworthy.
Then there are the mainstream operations whose online presence is an afterthought to their regular focus. The sites and their journalists are happy to use their large infrastructure to push information to their subscribers but are unwilling, or find it much more difficult, to engage with typical fans.
We provide news and information. But we go well beyond that offering insight, opinion and analysis. We strive to ensure that our content is accurate, holding to the belief that being right is more important than being first.
We are committed to building a global community of passionate hockey fans and work to actively engage them in dialogue and debate.
We innovate, challenge ourselves and reinvent.
There are sites who try to copy what we have built (some quite directly) but why would readers go anywhere else when we did it first and we do it better?
It’s up to each of member of the Rocket Sports team us to ensure that we are strengthening the founding principles of our site, fundamental to journalism.
Rocket Sports Media Launches Four New Hockey Publications
MONTREAL, QC. – This summer, Rocket Sports Media, Inc. (RSM) has launched a series of new websites to meet the growing global demand for hockey information via its All Habs Hockey Magazine brand.
All Habs has been the digital leader for providing original content to fans of the Montreal Canadiens in four languages: English, French, Spanish and Brazilian-Portuguese. This multilingual collection has been housed, until now, all on the AllHabs.net platform. In addition, the website reported on the Hamilton Bulldogs, the AHL affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens.
As of this summer, a separate site was developed for each of these areas of focus, resulting in the rollout of:
The Spanish site, All Habs en Espanol, will be unveiled in the fall.
In addition, RSM is complimenting this phase of expansion with an English-Czech bilingual website focusing on Czech hockey prospects playing in Europe and North-America building upon a popular AllHabs.net column from its Czech based correspondent.
Each of the four new websites are built upon the same popular magazine format as All Habs, featuring trusted information, accurate analysis, diverse opinions and fan-focused columns. The expansion further meets the RSM ongoing goal to provide original content to its readers in their language of choice. The enhanced experience includes readers of its flag-ship site, All Habs, which results in improved navigability.
As a sports and entertainment media company, Rocket Sports Media continues to maintain its strong position in the industry by maturing and evolving its portfolio of brands to nimbly respond to changes in the marketplace. RSM continues to bring more choice and more content to its readers, provides a broader platform for more writers and creates more targeted opportunities for our advertising partners.

At Rocket Sports Media (RSM) we are dedicated to building an engaged community of sports fans world-wide. We are committed to keeping that community informed and entertained, and our collaboration with Fantômes du Forum will help us to continue building connections.
Fantômes du Forum (FdF) is a French-language forum / discussion group centered around the Montreal Canadiens, which also focuses on keeping a light-hearted and family atmosphere. FdF fosters humour and development of new friendships while talking about hockey or any other subject in a lively and entertaining manner.
One of FdF’s main goals is to support charitable organizations. RSM will incorporate that portion of the FdF mission into our “Rocket Power” initiative, where fans can unite to make a difference in the lives of others.
All Habs Hockey Magazine is the flagship digital publication of RSM which features original content published in four languages. We intend to feature Fantômes as a key component of our launch of Le Magazine All Habs. Le Magazine is part of our strategy to broaden our French language coverage to meet increasing demand.
The motto of FdF is “C’est effrayant à quel point on a du plaisir / It’s scary how much we enjoy.” We think that you will enjoy too. Tell your friends that the ghosts of the Montreal Forum have a new home.
We are proud of this new partnership. Our newly expanded writing team will be working hard to provide you with a new fan experience as we continue bringing you a premiere online hockey community.
