The Ramparts of Quebec are a team of Major Junior Hockey League’s Quebec Major Junior Hockey.
Their home is in Quebec City and local parties take place at the brand new Videotron Center, which replaces Pepsi Coliseum, the former home of the late Quebec’s Nordiques, who played in the National Hockey League. The Quebec Remparts have participated in several editions of the Memorial cup and have won the trophy twice, in 1971 and 2006.
The Quebec Remparts were reborn in 1997, after a 12-year absence, when a group led by, among others, Jacques Tanguay and Patrick Roy, bought the Harfangs de Beauport, a team in the region that was in great difficulty, and saved it from sinking. Nevertheless, as of its formation in 1969, the team of the Old Capital did not hang behind because one of the star members of the original team was none other than Guy Lafleur, the Hockey Hall of famer and star player of the Montreal Canadiens. That same year, they won the Memorial Cup for the first time, concluding a very satisfying season.
It was in 2006, after a waiting period of 35 years, that the new Remparts de Québec will renew the experience by winning the cup again, and this in the arena of those who knew him beaten in the final of Quebec a few days ago, The Moncton Wildcats.
Since then, the Remparts continue to entertain young and old at the new Quebec City arena, the Videotron Center and the CHL (Canadian Hockey League) team brings competitive hockey each and every year. Several thousand people attend every game, which makes of Quebec City the biggest market of the Canadian Hockey League, which oversees the activities of all the junior teams in the country.
