Beginning with the 1922/23 season the Canadiens held its preseason training camp in Grimsby. Their time training in Grimsby culminated with a Stanley Cup victory in 1924. In November 1924 the team returned to Grimsby as world champions. They brought with them new sweaters that sported a globe, signifying the team’s world championship status. Grimsby was the first place that the now-famous globe logo was seen.

Grimsby can also lay claim to being the site where future hall of famers Aurel Joliet and Howie Morenz had their first skates with the Canadiens.
