The Chicoutimi Saguenéens are a junior ice hockey team which plays in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL). The team is based out of Chicoutimi, Quebec (now a part of the city of Saguenay) and owned by the City of Saguenay. The team plays its home games at the Centre Georges-Vézina.

History[edit]

The Chicoutimi Saguenéens franchise was granted for the 1973–74 season. The team's name, Saguenéens, literally means "People from the Saguenay".[citation needed] The current junior team is only the most recent to use the name. The "Sags", as they are popularly nicknamed, have won the President's Cup twice in their history, in 1990–91 and in 1993–94. Both times they advanced to the Memorial Cup, and both times they did not advance past the round-robin. The Sags also participated in the 1997 Memorial Cup, as the host Hull Olympiques also won the QMJHL that year. The Saguenéens also did not advance past the round-robin that year. Finally, the Centre Georges-Vézina hosted Memorial Cup festivities in 1988, but the team did not participate as then-current QMJHL rules forced the host team to make it to at least the President's Cup final, which the Saguenéens did not do that year.
