There have been two junior ice hockey franchises known as the Quebec Remparts (French: Remparts de Québec) that played in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. The first franchise played from 1969 to 1985; the current franchise has played since 1997. Both franchises were based out of Quebec City, Quebec. The teams played home games at the Colisée Pepsi, although the new edition of the Remparts played for two seasons at PEPS on the campus of the Université Laval between 1997 and 1999. The Remparts have developed NHL players Simon Gagné, Kevin Lowe, Mike Ribeiro, Antoine Vermette, Marc-Édouard Vlasic and Hall of Famers Michel Goulet and Guy Lafleur.

The name "Remparts" means curtain walls in French.

History[edit]

Original Remparts[edit]

The original Québec Remparts team was founded in 1969 by a group of investors who purchased the assets of the junior Quebec Aces team [1] The Remparts were finalists for the George Richardson Memorial Trophy in 1969–70, and eastern Canadian champions in 1970–71. It was this team, which featured future Hockey Hall of Famer Guy Lafleur, that won a Memorial Cup championship in 1971. The team also won the President's Cup five times. This edition of the Remparts is known to have the most American-born players on the roster every season.

After the 1984–85 season, the team went into dormancy for three seasons then were resurrected. After returning to play sponsored by "Le Collège Français," the team moved to Longueuil to become the Longueuil Collège Français. The team played for three seasons, then in 1991 they moved to Verdun to become the Verdun Collège Français. The franchise ceased operations in 1994.

Revived Remparts[edit]

The current Remparts franchise was granted for the 1990–91 season and was known as the Beauport Harfangs, again based in the Quebec City metropolitan area, before moving to Quebec City proper in 1997. They are considered one of the most popular Canadian Hockey League teams, as they regularly draw over 11,000 spectators per game. Similar to the NFL's Cleveland Browns, the team claims the history and records of the original Remparts.

On May 28, 2006, the Remparts won the Memorial Cup, beating the Moncton Wildcats 6-2 in the finals. Patrick Roy became the seventh coach to win the Cup in his rookie year behind the bench, and the first to do so since Claude Julien of the Hull Olympiques in 1997. It was also the first time in Memorial Cup history that the finals involved two teams from the QMJHL. Quebec also won the Cup without winning a league championship and without hosting the event, another first in Memorial Cup history. The 2006 Remparts are known for a high number of players from the New England region, as six New England natives were on the roster.
