HistoryEdit

The Montreal Junior Canadiens were a junior team that played in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

From 1933-34 to 1936-37, and from 1940-41 to 1954-55, they played in the Junior Amateur Hockey Association & its successor the Quebec Junior Hockey League. This league then folded.

From 1961-62 through 1971-72, they played in the Ontario Hockey Association's Junior A league.

From 1940-41 on they were a farm team of the Montreal Canadiens of the National Hockey League. This was before the Entry Draft. NHL teams sponsored junior teams and had the rights to all their players. This sponsorship ended in 1967.

The Montreal Junior Canadiens competed for the Memorial Cup and won it 3 times: 1949-50, 1968-69, and 1969-70.

Note: In 1952-53 the Quebec Citadelles defaulted the league final to the Junior Canadiens. Since the Quebec Amateur Hockey Association was under suspension by the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association the Junior Canadiens could not advance to the 1952-53 Eastern Canada Memorial Cup Playoffs.


In 1955-56 the Quebec Junior Hockey League disbanded. The Junior Canadiens played an exhibition schedule which included winning the Laurier Cup. They then played in the 1955-56 Eastern Canada Memorial Cup Playoffs and lost the final.

For the 1956-57 season, the team was moved to Ottawa where they became the independent Ottawa-Hull Canadiens.

In 1959-60 the team became the Brockville Canadiens in the Metropolitan Montreal Junior League.

In 1960-61 they played as the Hull Canadiens in the Interprovincial Senior Hockey League.

The team was revived in 1961 and joined the Ontario Hockey Association's Junior A league.

Note: In 1972 the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League insisted that the Junior Canadiens leave the Ontario league and join their league. The team then switched over and became the Montreal Bleu Blanc Rouge. The franchise (but not the players) switched to Kingston and became the Kingston Canadians and, eventually, the Kingston Frontenacs.
