Buffalo D Teppo Numminen is apparently forcing his fellow Finns to use "his" sticks (part owner of the company).

Nope. don't know when they started out but I have seen Montreal sticks knocking about for a while. Someone who used to play on my roller hockey team even had one of the wooden ones. If they made it over to our team, they have to have been around a fair bit

At a guess (someone please correct me if they actually know this for a fact) I would say they have been around since at least the 80's.

Montreal is a company from Finland and they have been around for a long, long time (since the '60's I believe). The founder was Teppo Numminen's father.

There's a sports store in Mtl up on Jarry or Jean Talon, I forget. But I bought a Montreal stick up there about 3 years ago, and went back to get another I liked it so much.

I seem to remember Tretiak playing with one against the Habs, probably New Years Eve '75. I could be delusional though.

I was convinced that it was in deference to our own HF poster of the same name.

It's a little known fact but Montreal actually means Mafle Leafs in Finnish, who knew?

It was a name that was recognizable to anyone who knew anything about hockey because the Canadiens were so dominant at the time the company was founded.

They mentioned this in an article in the Gazette on Teppo Numminen sometime this winter.
