As the NHL’s most historic team, the Montreal Canadiens have always been one of the most popular. On Instagram, the team is holding its own. In 2018, it ranked seventh among the circuit’s teams with the most subscribers, and in 2023, it still ranks seventh.
Nhljerseyz, an Instagram account lent itself to the exercise and revealed the 25 league players with the most followers. Four CH players are among them. These four players don’t even include captain Nick Suzuki.
They are Carey Price (15th), Cole Caufield (17th), Brendan Gallagher (24th) and… Juraj Slafkovksy (25th).

Seeing Carey Price, Cole Caufield and Brendan Gallagher isn’t too surprising, though.
On the one hand, Carey Price has long been the heart and soul of the team, the franchise’s winningest goaltender, and so on. I can list reasons all evening.
Brendan Gallagher has been in the league for a long time and he too has been an important player on the team. He’s not the most active on social networks, but from time to time, we see him sharing his private life with his subscribers.
And of course, there’s Cole Caufield, a crowd favorite. I’m sure he has several girls in his subscriber base.
Of course, Slaf has an entire country behind him. Of all the Slovaks drafted in the NHL, he was drafted the earliest and made history in his own way. And as the first overall pick in a draft, it’s only natural that you gain a few subscribers afterwards.
Connor McDavid (1,107,025) and Auston Matthews (803,094) complete the podium. Only two NHL players have over a million subscribers, so… It’s a different story from the NFL and NBA, anyway…
– An all-star dinner.
– We wish him the best of luck.
