The Jonquière Marquis are a hockey team in the Ligue Nord-Américaine de Hockey (LNAH), which is based in the province of Quebec. They play at the Palais des Sports.

History[edit]

The team started as the Saint-Lin-Laurentides Gladiateurs in 1996-1997 and moved to Sainte-Thérèse to become the Sainte-Thérèse Chiefs in 1997-1998.

They moved to Laval in 1998-1999, playing at the Colisée de Laval as the Laval Chiefs. During its time at Laval, the team won the Futura Cup in 2001-2002 and 2002-2003. The Laval Chiefs were also featured in a 2004 documentary on the Chiefs' enforcers, Les Chiefs.

The Chiefs were previously part of the semi-professional QSPHL (1998–2003) and QSMHL (2003–2004).

The team was sold to Genex Communications in 2005-2006 and were rechristened the Summum Chiefs after one of Genex's magazines, Summum. Genex sold the team to a group from Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu and it moved there for the 2006-2007 season, playing at the Colisée Isabelle-Brasseur. The Saint-Jean Summum Chiefs won the Futura Cup in 2006-2007, after ironically having played their last two playoff series in their former home, the Colisée de Laval.

The team moved to Saguenay in 2008 to become the Saguenay 98.3, after the local radio station that sponsored the team, CKRS-FM (at the time under ownership of Corus Entertainment). The players were sold but not the name Summum Chiefs, whose name was retained by Genex. The team name moved to Saint-Hyacinthe in 2008 to become the Saint-Hyacinthe Chiefs, before that team permanently folded the following season.
