He talks about the team at every opportunity, wears their gear proudly in interviews and on the street, appeared in a series of videos promoting the team, and was once named honorary captain by owner Geoff Molson and Habs tough guy Chris Nilan. 

Jay Baruchel is also part owner and chief creative officer of Chapterhouse Comics. He is best known for his roles in Knocked UpTropic ThunderThis Is the EndAlmost FamousMillion Dollar Baby and the Goon movie franchise (he wrote both screenplays and directed the sequel). He is the voice of Hiccup Haddock in the How to Train Your Dragon movies and series. Born in Ottawa and raised for the most part in Montreal, Baruchel now lives in Toronto, where he continues to cheer for the Habs.

CBC PEI Morning hosts Matt Rainnie and Mitch Cormier will host the event at the Florence Simmons Performance Hall, 140 Weymouth Street, Charlottetown. Tickets are available at Bookmark or
