The Drummondville Voltigeurs ("Infantrymen") are a junior ice hockey team of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. The franchise was originally granted for the 1982–83 season, and are based out of Drummondville, Quebec. The team plays its home games at the Centre Marcel Dionne. They have won the league's President's Cup only once, in 2009.

HistoryEdit

Drummondville had a QMJHL team at the foundation of the league in 1969, called the Drummondville Rangers. However, the team folded at the end of the 1973–74 season. In 1982 the city was granted an expansion franchise, along with the Longueuil Chevaliers. The team was named for a Quebec-based regiment that fought in the War of 1812, the Canadian Voltigeurs. There is no literal translation of the name "Voltigeurs" from French into English, but "Infantrymen" or "Musketeers" captures the essence of it. The Voltigeurs have not enjoyed a tremendous amount of success on the ice in their history, and have only won the President's Cup and Jean Rougeau Trophy once respectively, both in 2009.

The Voltigeurs have participated in the Memorial Cup tournament three times. In 1988 and 1991, they participated as the league runner-up and in 2009 as the league champions. In 1988 they finished last in the round-robin, but in 1991 the team made it to the Cup final, where they lost to the Spokane Chiefs. In the 2009 Memorial Cup tournament, the Voltigeurs finished second in the round robin, but lost to the Windsor Spitfires in the semi-finals.
