Don’t miss the Ambassadors Club Golf Tournament tomorrow!

“The Ambassadors Club’s mission is to assemble former QMJHLers and organise various events with the purpose to tighten the link that binds us together: Junior hockey” said the league’s commissioner, Gilles Courteau. This club is a long time coming for the QMJHL, according to Guy Darveau, the Club’s president and former defenseman for the Longueuil Chevaliers, Victoriaville Tigres and Vedrun Canadiens Junior. “The League needed some sort of group in order to create a feeling of belonging among its alumni. With the Ambassador’s club, we are able to assemble people who makeup the QMJHL family. Former players, leaders, officials and support staff are all welcome.”
