The Bell Centre is set to receive a major upgrade.

Montreal Canadiens owner Geoff Molson announced Wednesday a plan to invest $100 million for renovations in and around the team's home arena over the next three years.

Molson said a new pedestrian "mall" will be constructed outside Bell Centre. A number of other interior and exterior improvements will also be made to the facility, including the replacement of all 21,288 seats.

Originally called the Molson Centre, the Canadiens have played in the building since leaving the Montreal Forum in 1996.
