An 18,000 seat rink should be finished in 2015, for both an NHL team and a future Winter Olympics bid, with the support of major companies such as Quebecor.

A Habs-friendly construction worker might have put himself permanently into the bad books of Quebec City hockey fans.

Eric Rivest has released a video that shows him throwing a Montreal Canadiens puck into the concrete foundation of the future NHL-ready arena in the provincial capital.

Wearing his hard hat and construction gear, the young man tosses the puck into the churning cement and says “there, Nordiques, we’re in your head!”

The arena will be completed by 2015 and people in Quebec City hope the building will be the first step towards the return of NHL hockey to the provincial capital.

The bad luck Habs puck isn’t a unique stunt.

In 2008, during construction of the new Yankee Stadium, a worker buried a Boston Red Sox jersey in the concrete structure.

The offending sweater didn’t stay buried for long - workers spent about five hours digging a hole into the concrete to retrieve the hated jersey and return it to Boston.
