According to Brian McFarlane's original six book on the Habs, Ambrose O'Brien owned the Wanderers suggested to Jimmy Gardner to start a french Canadian team and call them Les Canadiens. They went on to form a new league called the National Hockey Association in 1909.


I will quote the rest: "In 1910, when Montrealer George Kennedy and his partners in the Canadien Athletic Club purchased the Canadiens, the team emblem became a maple leaf with the letters "CAC" imprinted on the leaf. Imagine a maple leaf on Montreal jersey! The sweater colours became red, white and blue. By 1915 the sweater began to take on the appearance of the modern-day red sweater. In 1917 someone designed a large "C" surrounding a small "H", an emblem which has remained constant, and extremelly popular, for almost 80 years. There is a misconception that the letter "H" stands for "Habs" or "Habitants", meaning farmers or people living in the country, stemming from the fact that most Canadiens were French-speaking boys from rural areas. But the "H" in the emblem really stands for "Hockey". I actually highly recommand that book to all die-hard Habs' fans. The name of the team is actually Club de Hockey Canadien.
