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:

Le Magazine All Habs    (fr.allhabs.net)

All Habs Brasil / All Hockey Brasil            (br.allhabs.net / hockeybrasil.com)

Bulldogs Hockey Report               (bulldogs.allhabs.net / bulldogshockeyreport.com)

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.

ROCKET POWER | Rocket Sports Supports Autism Speaks

Rocket Power is an initiative pioneered by Rocket Sports Media designed to mobilize hockey fans to support charitable organizations and to get involved in their communities. We proud to help raise awareness with a series of continuing features  intended to spotlight members of the hockey community who are making a difference.

By Erica, Fundraising Coordinator, Rocket Power

excerpted from All Habs Hockey Magazine :

MONTREAL, QC. — Wendy Ferris Groulx has been instrumental in involving the Montreal Canadiens with fundraisers for autism spectrum disorders. She and her husband, Canadiens goaltending coach Pierre Groulx, are parents to twin boys. One of the twins, Leo, was diagnosed with autism just over a year ago. Here, she discusses her, and the Canadiens’, involvement with Autism Speaks, to raise both funds and public awareness for the disorder.

walknow-300x104How did you get involved with Autism Speaks?

This happened through the Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation. Our of our twin boys, Leo, was diagnosed with autism a little more than a year ago, a couple of months before his 3rd birthday. During the lockout, my husband spoke with Geneviève Paquette, the executive director of the Montreal Canadiens Children’s Foundation and suggested that the Foundation do something to promote autism awareness, if possible. She then brought this all together, with Pierre and I creating Team Canadiens-Pierre Groulx for Walk Now for Autism Speaks, and both Autism Speaks and the social-services group CRDI-Montérégie coming together to promote autism awareness at the April 1 game at the Bell Centre.
