The Shawinigan Cataractes are a junior ice hockey team in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. The team is based out of Shawinigan, Quebec. The Cataractes have been previously known as the Shawinigan Bruins until 1973, and were called the Shawinigan Dynamos from 1973–78.

The Cataractes play their home games at the Centre Bionest de Shawinigan. The former home of the team was Aréna Jacques Plante. Over the course of their 43 year history they hadn't won any league championships, or Memorial Cups until they were chosen to host the 2012 MasterCard Memorial Cup. As they became only the second team to play in the tie-breaker, and win the Memorial Cup in overtime in front of a sellout hometown crowd.
