In 1942-43 the Cataractes were again intermediate in the Quebec-Lauzon Maritime League. They returned to the Provincial Senior League in 1944-45 after taking a year off in 1943-44.

In the 1945-46 season they were admitted to the Quebec Senior Hockey League and followed that league thorugh its change in status to major and then professional.

They took a leave of absence in 1953-54 because they good not accquire enough good players. In 1954 they returned as a farm team of the Montreal Canadiens which provided them with an adequate supply of players.
