The Trois-Rivières Draveurs (French: Les Draveurs de Trois-Rivières) were an ice hockey team based in Trois-Rivières, Quebec. The team was part of the Ligue Nord-Américaine de Hockey (LNAH) and played at the Colisée de Trois-Rivières.

The team started in Pont-Rouge, Quebec in 1996–97 as the Pont-Rouge Grand Portneuf and became the Pont-Rouge Caron & Guay in 2001–02 before moving to Trois-Rivières in 2004–05.

The team was known as the Trois-Rivières Caron & Guay until the 2013–14 season when the team name was changed to the Trois-Rivières Vikings. Before the 2014–15 season, the name was changed again, to the Trois-Rivières Blizzard. In July 2017, it was announced that the club had been renamed to Trois-Rivières Draveurs following a change in ownership.[1] The new name was taken from the former major junior ice hockey team which competed in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League from 1973 to 1992.[1] The new ownership had its membership revoked from the LNAH after one season.[2]
