Yes he is advertising himself, as all singers do. In this case though, he's not claiming to be associated with the Habs. He could get in trouble for the video he made, as he used CBC footage that I'm sure he didn't get permission to use. That would be with CBC though, not the NHL or the Habs.

Actually I know he has a few other non-hockey related songs. I just don't know the names off hand.

Edit: Also since the Habs play his song at the games, I'm guessing they are okay with it.

Oh I see what you're saying. It's a song though, if the announcers were to claim on the air that the song was associated with the Habs. That would be a different story. No copyright law is being broken by the radio station in this case.
