Go Habs Go! ♥️ . . Proud, excited, and grateful for @jeffpetry26 & our family’s opportunity to get to stay in Montreal for the next 5 years. It’s crazy to think how much has happened since that last picture I took 5 years ago (when I was very pregnant with Boyd) as Jeff signed his first deal with Montreal, compared to the second one I took as he signed his extension yesterday. I can’t help but smile when I see the beautiful life we have created during that time. We knew it would be an adventure when we signed in Montreal in 2015 after being traded there, but we didn’t know we would bring 3 perfect little boys into this world, create a home away from home, make lifelong friendships with teammates & their families, and be welcomed by the beautiful city of Montreal. To get to continue to experience hockey through the lens of one the most historic franchises, and one that has been nothing but good to our family is nothing short of a blessing. Realizing we will be raising our boys during this next part of our hockey journey at an age they will actually remember their dad vividly playing for THE Montreal Canadiens makes us feel proud, and not to be taken for granted. The Petrys are excited to see what the next 5 years holds for us, as we root ourselves even deeper in the MTL community and see what’s in store for the @canadiensmtl. Even though we are still currently living in very uncertain times, we have faith that when things get back to normal, the best is yet to come! God is good! . . #godisgood #gohabsgo #nhl #family #mtl #montrealcanadiens
