“Thank you @celinedion for your great generosity. The whole team was very happy to meet you and your family.”
Monreal Canadiens’ official Instagram page has also shared several snaps of Dion meeting a number of their players.
The singer looked radiant in white, donning a winter-appropriate gilet and matching white watch, and layered up with a light beige sweater.
She kept her hair in a smart bun and smiled at the camera throughout her surprise visit.
Hundreds of fans have since taken to the comments of Machabee’s post to celebrate Dion’s brief return to the spotlight.
One Instagram user replied: “Celine!!! You look incredible! Sending you hugs! We love you so much!!”
“Oh God! This is everything… she looks amazing,” said another.
“Wow! So great to see Céline looking so healthy and happy!” a third fan commented.
And another replied: “Thank you so much for posting and letting us know that Céline is doing well.”
Dion revealed her diagnosis in December 2022 after she was forced to delay her shows in Las Vegas, cancelling her remaining North American concerts to focus on her health earlier this year.
Her sister Claudette has since been sharing updates on the singer’s condition, telling fans that Dion has been struggling to find the right medication.
In Le Journal de Montreal, she disclosed: “When I call her and she’s busy, I speak to my sister Linda who lives with her and tells me that she’s working hard.
“She’s listening to the top researchers in the field of this rare disease as much as possible.
“I honestly think that she mostly needs to rest. She always goes above and beyond, she always tries to be the best and top of her game.
“At one point, your heart and your body are trying to tell you something. It’s important to listen to it.”
