This is the 2017-18 Quebec Major Junior Hockey League season. This is the league's 49th season.
The Drummondville Voltigeurs are tentatively scheduled to host the 2018 QMJHL Winter Classic. The site will be the Victor-Pepin rink. The venue will have about 5,500 temporary seats installed for the event. The University of Quebec at Trois-Rivières may also have an outdoor game at the facility. The game will be the third outdoor game in QMJHL history after the two games hosted in Saint-Tite, Quebec by the Shawinigan Cataractes as part of the 2015 QMJHL Winter Classic.
Cancellations due to weather are not uncommon in the QMJHL but two cancellations in September could be classified as a little unusual.
On September 26th a game between the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada and Gatineau Olympiques at the Robert Guertin Arena in Gatineau was suspended at the start of the third period due to a fog build-up (think Boston Garden for the Bruins-Oilers 1988 Stanley Cup Finals) that became a safety concern for the players. The game will be completed on January 28th.
The next day the Baie-Comeau Drakkar game against the Chicoutimi Sagueneens at the Centre Georges-Vezina was cancelled due to a water main break near the arena and a steady supply of water could not be guaranteed for the game so it was cancelled and rescheduled for December 5th.
To be added upon completion of the regular season.
