Beijing, China - On Janaury 8th, the Montreal Canadiens Alumni Players visited Gubei Watertown Simatai Great Wall with Youppi, the team's mascot.
They were impressed about the landscape, and how Chinese people were able to build such a huge fortification long time ago.
Youppi is the official mascot of the Montreal Canadiens Hockey Club. This is the first time a hockey team's mascot is appearing in the Great Wall of China.
The alumni players enjoyed some ice time on a frozen pond, and tasted the local Chinese food.
The Alumni Players were very pleased about the trip organized by CTC within the Montreal Canadies Alumni Program in China.
