Do you remember the story of Alexis Lafrenière in New York who refused to speak French in front of the journalists by the organization? This story had caused a lot of ink to flow in Quebec and we were even outraged that the origins of a player could pose such a problem.

Unfortunately, something similar happened with Samuel Montembeault. The Canadiens' goalie is currently on fire with Team Canada at the World Championships. Questioned by reporters, the Quebecer said a few words in French, which prompted the TSN director to cut the segment immediately.
Here are the words of the former scout of the Tricolore, Grant McCagg:
"Monty says a few words in French so the TSN director immediately cuts him off. The Toronto Sports Network never fails to disappoint."

We don't have video of the sequence, but having seen it, I can tell you that there is no room for ambiguity, it was deliberate and in no way subtle.
