WOW: Crazy Revelation Emerges on the Behaviour of Two Former Canadiens Off the Ice

Published March 12, 2024 at 10:56

Due to the trade deadline last Friday, we hadn't had the chance to revisit the latest episode of the Stanley25 podcast, but very interesting information was disclosed and we wanted to share it with you.

Indeed, during their sixth episode, Jean Trudel and Maxime Truman were visited by Odile Bernard, a former participant of Occupation Double (2011). The former waitress of the Globe resto-bar notably shared some anecdotes about the Montreal Canadiens players, who used to frequent this place in the past.

To the surprise of many, she debunked several rumors, indicating that the Tricolore players were quite calm during their nights out at bars, having fun among "boys." She mentioned that the former members of the Bleu-Blanc-Rouge were level-headed; they were always very respectful towards the waitresses and the restaurant staff.

However, there was still one exception to the rule

"The Kostitsyns were the exception to the rule." - Stanley25

Odile Bernard, who worked in bars from 2010 to 2013, confessed that the Kostitsyn brothers, Andrei and Sergei, were completely "crazy" when they decided to party. A statement that is not likely to surprise many fans, given that the two former Canadiens forwards were known for their somewhat dubious activities off the ice.

"They [the Canadiens players] earn big salaries, yes, but they really have their heads screwed on right. They sometimes celebrated after victories, but they were always very respectful. There are exceptions to the rule, though.

In my time, in 2010-2011, there was Benoit Pouliot, Scott Gomez, Tomas Plekanec, Max Pacioretty, and, even if they partied, it wasn't wild debauchery. They were level-headed and they never were «out of line». Many of them were family men, they partied, but it was never really «crazy».

However, the Kostitsyn brothers, it was «fun is fun time» you know." - Odile Bernard

Without going into complete detail, she then admitted that the two brothers sometimes tried to kiss the waitresses and were often very intoxicated.

Let's just say we're not too surprised to learn such information

To learn more, we highly recommend listening to the latest episode of the podcast:
