This year marks the Montreal Canadiens Cennetennial and their long serving captain, Saku Koivu, and his team-mates hope to make it a season to celebrate.

The year will get of to a good start with the All-Star Game being held in Montreal this January and the 2009 NHL Trading Card and Memorabillia Show taking place from Thurs 22-Sat 24 January at Windsor Stadium next to the Bell Center.

McFarlane Toys have announced they will be attending this years show and to celebrate the Canadiens Centennial they will be bringing with them a limited number of exclusive Saku Koivu NHL Figures.

McFarlane's second figure of Koivu to celebrate the Canadiens Centennial year features the long serving captain ready to win a face off.

These figures will be available on a first come, first served basis and will only be available at the show and with a LIMITED production run of ONLY 3,000 figures an early sell out is anticipated.

Saku Koivu Career Profile

The sport of hockey calls for a mental and physical toughness that not many possess. As a funny trick nature likes to play, people from colder climates tend to be inherently tougher than those from warmer spots on the globe. Saku Koivu, the Finnish-born hockey pro, is a prime example of the hard-as-nails mentality and physical prowess displayed by hockey legends born of snow-laced ground.

Saku Antero Koivu was born November 23, 1974 in Turku, Finland. Currently, he's a Center for the Montreal Canadiens, and widely regarded as one of the best in the game today. As the popularity of the NHL declines in the U.S., players like Koivu grasp the attention of the rest of the world, and propel professional hockey to the forefront.

In 1992, Koivu began his professional ice hockey career with TPS (a hockey team) in the Finnish SM-liiga (the nation's well-known league). During his time with TPS, Koivu helped the team to two Finnish Championships, and was elected as Player of the Year during the 1994-95 season. Due to his high-intensity, skillful play on the ice, Koivu was drafted by the Canadiens in the 1993 NHL Entry Draft 21st overall and subsequently moved to North America in 1995 to begin playing.

Koivu quickly proved that his talent for hockey could shine amidst equally impressive aptitude in the NHL. He finished his first year 4th in scoring among NHL rookies, and was the leading scorer the following season before injuring his knee against the Chicago Blackhawks. Koivu's next few years were as solid as any in hockey, and he was named Captain of the Canadiens in 1999, the first-ever Euro-born team Captain.

Tragedy struck Koivu in 2001, as he was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and was forced to miss the entire 01-02 season. However, as a testament to his fortitude, Koivu returned to hockey the following year, and led his Montreal team to a first-round upset over the Boston Bruins in the playoffs. Due to his courage, Koivu was awarded the Bill Masterson Memorial Trophy.

The NHL, never a stable league to begin with, experienced a lockout during the 05-06 season, and Koivu returned to his TPS roots along with his teammate Craig Rivet. Koivu returned to the Canadiens for the 06 season and scored his 500th career NHL point against the Atlanta Thrashers. This would be his best season to date, and Koivu was even given the King Clancy Trophy for his prominent role in cancer-fighting, via the Saku Koivu Foundation.

In March of 2008, Soku Koivu was named among the 10 best Captains of all-time (10th) in Impact Magazine, listed with such greats at Mario Lemieux and Mark Messier. Koivu continues to play professional hockey for the Montreal Canadiens, and during the 2008 season scored his 600th career point. His battle against cancer and ultimate triumph is a demonstration of his never-say-die character.
