Introduction

The QMJHL was founded in 1969 and originally consisted only of teams in the province of Quebec, with the one notable exception of the Cornwall Royals, who played in Cornwall, Ontario, near the Quebec border. Most of the teams were within a few hours' drive of Montreal. Of the original founding members of the league, only the Shawinigan Cataractes remain in the same city with an uninterrupted history, although the team's name has changed (they were originally the Shawinigan Bruins). Each spring the league's teams compete for the President's Cup, symbolic of QMJHL supremacy. The QMJHL champion then goes on to compete in the Memorial Cup against the OHL and WHL champions. QMJHL teams have won the Memorial Cup seven times since 1969, with the original Québec Remparts, the Granby Prédateurs, the Hull Olympiques and the Rimouski Océanic each winning once and the Cornwall Royals winning three times. 1969 (MCMLXIX) was a common year starting on Wednesday (the link is to a full 1969 calendar). ...

Comparison to other Canadian Major Junior leagues

The QMJHL traditionally adopted a rapid and exciting style, based on the offensive talent of its players, whereas the other two Junior Canadian leagues (the OHL and the WHL) were moulded into a more closed and defensive style like the teams of the NHL. The Q is more known for producing high-quality offensive players and goalies than defensemen, with some of its most famous examples being Mario Lemieux and Patrick Roy (who was said to start the tide of top Quebecois goalies, the reason being that kids saw Roy on TV and emulated his signature style).
