Montreal Canadiens will have full access to the Bell Centre sooner that expected.

The March 14th date that Quebec’s government had set aside for the restoration of 100% capacity at venues throughout the province was March 14, but it was moved up Wednesday.

The Canadiens will have the right to fill their arena up to capacity for the Seattle Kraken match on March 12. Montreal will host a capacity crowd for the first time in three months.

Fans attending games will not need to show proof of vaccination. Fans attending games will still need to cover their faces at all times, even if they aren’t eating or drinking.
