About Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League is one of the three major junior ice hockey leagues that constitute the Canadian Hockey League. The league comprises teams across Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island. The QMJHL is the highest level of junior hockey in Canada. The President's Cup is the championship trophy of the league. It is named in honor of former QMJHL president, J. Louis Levasseur. The trophy was first awarded in 1971–72. The QMJHL championship series is a best-of-seven playoff format. The team that finishes first in the standings during the regular season is awarded the President's Cup and is given a home-ice advantage for the championship series. The QMJHL is widely considered to be one of the best development leagues in the world for junior hockey players. Many players who have gone on to successful careers in the National Hockey League have developed their skills in the QMJHL. 

In recent years, the league has produced marquee players such as Sidney Crosby, Marc-Andre Fleury, Jonathan Drouin, and Nathan MacKinnon. The QMJHL is also a breeding ground for NHL coaches, with several former bench bosses having moved on to successful careers in the league, including Michel Therrien, Claude Julien, and Jacques Martin. The QMJHL is currently the most represented Canadian hockey league at the NHL level, with nearly 30% of NHL players have come from the QMJHL. Additionally, every team in the Atlantic Division of the NHL's Eastern Conference is either currently or has previously been affiliated with a QMJHL team. The QMJHL was founded in 1969 as one of the successor leagues to the Quebec Amateur Hockey Association. The QAHA had been organized in 1934 and was itself a successor to the interprovincial Junior Hockey League, which had existed from 1929–30. The QMJHL comprises three divisions: the East, West, and Central. Each division consists of 10 teams. The regular season schedule runs from mid-September until the end of March. 

Teams play a 68-game schedule, which includes 34 home games and 34 away games, as well as four 3-game playoff rounds. The top eight teams in each division make the playoffs. The division semifinals and finals are best-of-seven series, with the division champion advancing to the conference championship. The conference champions then compete in a best-of-seven series for the league championship, the President's Cup. The QMJHL is affiliated with the Canadian Hockey League, the governing body for major junior hockey in Canada. The CHL is itself affiliated with Hockey Canada, the governing body for amateur and professional hockey in Canada. The QMJHL is one of three CHL leagues, along with the Ontario Hockey League and the Western Hockey League, that make up the Canadian Hockey League. The other two leagues are the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and the Central Canada Hockey League.
