The 2019–20 Montreal Canadiens season was the 111th season for the franchise that was established on December 4, 1909, and their 103rd in the National Hockey League.

The season was suspended by the league officials on March 12, 2020, after several other professional and collegiate sports organizations followed suit as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.[1][2] On May 26, the NHL regular season was officially declared over with the remaining games being cancelled.[3] The Canadiens advanced to the playoffs for the first time since the 2016–17 season, and defeated the Pittsburgh Penguins in the qualifying round, but were eliminated by the Philadelphia Flyers in the first round in six games.[4]
