The 1961–62 Montreal Canadiens season was the 53rd season in franchise history. The team placed first in the regular season to qualify for the playoffs. The Canadiens were eliminated in semi-finals by the Chicago Black Hawks 4 games to 2.


Pre-seasonEdit

The Canadiens held their training camp in Victoria, British Columbia. They then played exhibition games in Vancouver, Seattle, Trail, Calgary, Regina, and Winnipeg. One of the reasons for their trip to the west was to counter the Toronto Maple Leafs' reputation as Canada's team. The Canadiens were hoping to increase their popularity across the country, particularly on television broadcasts.
