BRIAN GIONTA RUMORS & GOSSIP

Brian Gionta’s Time With the Montreal Canadiens

Photo credits to Bridget Samuels via photopin.com NHL- A look back at Brian Gionta’s time with the Montreal Canadiens. Gio (a nickname given to him by his teammates) may not have stood tall in stature, being the second shortest player in the NHL, but his huge heart made up for his lack of size physically.

Brian Gionta Signs with the Sabers

The Buffalo Sabers and Brian Gionta agree to a 3 year $12.75M deal. Another great move by the Sabers getting a good veteran player that can help your young team and also Gionta was the former captain for the Canadians. I really do like what the Sabers are doing today signing to former Canadians which can help their team out a lot.

Michel Therrien on Brian Gionta: "Our captain was crying in my arms"

I'm sure it's crushing for a captain of a playoff team to re-injure himself. It must be doubly crushing for Montreal Canadiens captain Brian Gionta, watching his team go down three games to one against the Ottawa Senators.
