The Blainville-Boisbriand Armada are a junior ice hockey team of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. The team is based out of Boisbriand, Quebec. The team play its home games at the Centre d'Excellence Sports Rousseau.


The team started out as the St. John's Fog Devils when Newfoundland was granted an expansion franchise. The team was sold to a group of people intending to move the team to Montreal for the 2008–09 season. The team became the Montreal Junior Hockey Club. In June 2011, the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League approved the sale of the Juniors to a group led by former NHL defenseman Joel Bouchard who moved the team to Boisbriand, Quebec, for the 2011–12 season.[1]

On July 12, 2011, the team unveiled their new name (Blainville-Boisbriand Armada), logo (The A with ARMADA written over it in a banner) and colors (black and white).[2]
