Georges St-Pierre returned home to a hero’s welcome.
The 36-year-old dropped the puck for the ceremonial opening faceoff ahead of Tuesday’s game between the Columbus Blue Jackets and Montreal Canadiens, and was given a standing ovation by the Bell Centre crowd.
St-Pierre made a successful return to the UFC on Nov. 4, defeating Michael Bisping by rear-naked choke at Madison Square Garden to win the middleweight title.
