Inside the Numbers for the Final Round

The 2017 QMJHL President Cup final will feature two great franchises of the 2005 expansion who have followed very different paths in their first 12 seasons. While the Sea Dogs forged their future by drawing the 1st overall draft pick 5 times, their opponents moved home twice, from St.John’s to Montreal, and then in Boisbriand in 2011. Now comes the final battle between the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada, led by Joël Bouchard, and Danny Flynn’s Saint John Sea Dogs.

Recap of the 2016-17 regular season

  • Saint John (48-14-5-1, 102 points, 1st in the overall standings) – after winning the regular-season title for the 4th time in their history, the Sea Dogs boasted the league’s best record on the road in 2016-17, with 23 wins (.676).
    • Mathieu Joseph – is considered one of the most complete forwards in the QMJHL. He had an excellent offensive season with 80 points in 54 games (36 goals), but he also had the best plus-minus differential on his team with +37. He was a finalist for the Guy-Carbonneau trophy for Defensive forward of the year. His 2016-17 campaign was interrupted with a stint on the Canadian junior team at the World Championship (silver medal).
    • Thomas Chabot – accompanied Joseph on Team Canada, and his performances earned him the title of top defenseman of that tournament. He was later named the QMJHL defenseman of the year for his season of 10 goals and 35 assists; a total of 45 points in only 34 games. This Beauce player started the season with the Ottawa Senators last fall, playing his very first game in the National Hockey League on October 18th against Arizona.
    • Bourque and Zboril – Two other defensemen have at least 40 points this season for the Sea Dogs, Simon Bourque (56 in 59GP), and Jakub Zboril (41 in 50GP)
    • Danny Flynn – is an experienced coach who just this season passed 300 wins in the QMJHL. He was recently awarded coach of the year and leads a squad of 11 players already affiliated to NHL teams. His private goal is surely to put his name on the President Cup for a third time, after his previous experiences with Moncton (2006 and 2010).
    • Since January 1st, including playoffs, the Sea Dogs have maintained a win percentage of .804, by virtue of 37 wins in 46 games; the best record in the league for 2017.
  • Blainville-Boisbriand (43-19-4-2, 92 points, tied for team record, 5th overall) – Joël Bouchard is this group’s band leader, occupying several major positions, in addition to being a part owner. He is president, managing director and head coach of the team, since taking over the franchise and transferring it to Boisbriand. There have been successes since then, with 3 divisional championships (2011-12, 2012-13, 2014-15), and now with a participation in the post-season grand final. Through his passion, Bouchard knows how to bring a team to the next level. The quality of the team’s game, coupled with an unwavering work ethic, shows their pride, game after game. Bouchard has already got his hands on the President Cup as a defenseman, exactly 25 years ago with the Collège Français de Verdun in 1992
    • The Armada won the Robert-Lebel trophy for the second time in their history (2.58, 2014-15), an honour given to the team that has the best goals average (2.47, 2016-17).
    • Record season – from one year to the next, the Armada’s defensive squad has been impressive. This year, it continued to dominate, shutting out their opponents 10 times in 2016-17; a new QMJHL record. Samuel Montembeault earned 6 of these (2.40, 907, 28-9-1-0). While his rookie teammate Francis Leclerc blanked opponents 4 times in 30 games, and earned the QMJHL’s best goals-against average (2.31, 908, 15-8-2-2).
    • TJ Melancon completed the regular season with 19 goals; the most for a QMJHL defensemen – ahead of Nicolas Meloche of the Islanders (16), and Simon Bourque of the Sea Dogs (15).
    • Important acquisitions – a few new players were acquired by the Armada during the season by trade, adding offensive talent and depth on defense: Pierre-Luc Dubois (18-year-old, Columbus 1st-round pick in the 2016 draft, 3rd overall, acquired from Cape Breton). Alex Barré-Boulet (19-year-old, 81 points in 65 games in 2016-17, acquired from Drummondville) and Tobie Paquette-Bisson (19, reliable defenseman as evidenced by his +26 differential this season, acquired from Cape Breton).

    • Thomas Chabot – is in a class of his own at the moment. In his last two games, he has 5 points in total, including 3 in the decisive match of the series. In 14 playoff games, he hasn’t finished a with a negative differential. His +24 differential is the best in the post season, ahead of teammates Joseph (+17), Imama, and Bourque (+15).
    • Callum Booth – 19-year-old Carolina 4th-round pick (NHL,2015), will have to raise his game a notch when he faces the Armada.

TRENDS

  • Regular season champions – The Sea Dogs finished first. Since the spring of 2004, 14 consecutive times, the QMJHL team that collected the most regular-season points went on to win it all.
  • Double that – 27 times in the history of the league, the Jean-Rougeau Trophy winning team as regular season champion, eventually earned the President Cup at the end of the playoffs. In the current decade, since 2010, 5 out of 7 times, the champions have earned a double “Season / Series” title. Among this group of clubs are the Sea Dogs doing it in 2011 and 2012.

Head-to-Head QUÉBEC VS THE MARITIMES

  • 11th battle this year – since Halifax became the first franchise to settle in the Maritimes in 1994-95, the league’s big final has since led to 10 clashes between clubs from Quebec and the Maritimes. So far, it’s a tie, with 5 wins for each territory. The Maritime provinces have been dominant since 2006 though, with successively; Moncton (2006), Saint John (2011 and 2012) and Halifax (2013) proving their supremacy.

12-SEASONS – BEST IN THE PLAYOFFS

  • Saint John – If you examine the Sea Dogs’s first 12 seasons, they have maintained a great percentage of series won (.750, 18/24, 2006-2017). Of all the franchises in the history of the league in their first 12 years in the playoffs, the top performance comes from the Sea Dogs; beating out the percentage of series won by the Quebec Remparts (.731, 19/26, 1970- 1981) followed by Val-d’Or (.667, 12/18, 1994-2005), Sherbrooke (.640, 16/2, 1970-1981) and Cornwall (.636, 14/22, 1970-1981) .
  • Blainville-Boisbriand – by comparison, since this franchise is the same age as the Sea Dogs (2005), it should be noted that the “St.John’s / Montréal / Blainville-Boisbriand” franchises have so far maintained a series-win percentage of .500, with a respectable win percentage of .521 (63/121).
  • Québec – The Remparts of the 1970s, with 7 finals including 5 championships in 8 playoff years (1970-1977), no other team has ever offered such a high level of performance in such a short time. By comparison, the Sea Dogs will compete in their 4th final, winning 2 to date (2010-2017; 8 years).
  • Laval – The Voisins and the Titan, for the period 1984 to 1995 are the franchise that have been the most dominant over a period of 12 years, in terms of percentage of series won (.767, 23/30, 1984-95 ) and percentage of victories (.673, 111 wins in 165 games).
  • Hull/Gatineau – What to say about the Olympiques from 1995 to 2006? They are practically nose-to-nose with Laval in terms of series won (.765), while they dominate all franchises, over a 12-year period, for series played (34), winning series (26) games played (181) and wins (114). Like Laval, Hull / Gatineau had 4 championships and 6 finals in 12 years.

  • Bokondji Imama (Saint John) – he has already faced the Armada twice in the post season. While playing for the Baie-Comeau Drakkar, he won two consecutive semi-final rounds in the spring of 2013 and 2014. Will he eliminate the Armada for a third time? Also, will he win his first President Cup, after two failed attempts with the Drakkar, against Halifax (2013) and Val-d’Or (2014, a heartbreak 7-games loss). At 20, in the 2016-17 regular season, Imama played a major role in the offensive chessboard of the Sea Dogs, scoring 41 goals in 66 games. That’s 55 points in total for a player selected in the 6th round by The Tampa Bay Lightning in 2015. He is one of the most impressive power forwards in the circuit at 6’01 and 217 pounds. By including the playoffs, he is only 2 goals away from 50; he has 7 goals and 6 assists in 14 post-season games! Regular season and playoffs included, he has 10 game-winning goals, including one that eliminated Chicoutimi last Sunday in a 6-5 road win.

EXCEPTIONAL 16-YEAR-OLD PLAYERS

GUY LAFLEUR TROPHY

  • The most valuable player in the playoffs – you may already have a few names in mind for the title this year. Who will succeed Francis Perron of the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies, the recipient of the Guy Lafleur Trophy, last year? It’s usually a forward who wins the honour (73% of the time | 29/40), whereas 8 goaltenders have won the title since the trophy was awarded in 1978. Only 3 defensemen were acclaimed most valuable player: Sylvain Côté (1986 with Hull, title exceptionally shared with Luc Robitaille), Jason Doig (1996 with Granby) and Danny Groulx (2002 with Victoriaville).

THE PRESIDENT CUP

  • At stake for the 48th time in QMJHL history- This trophy was first awarded in the 1960s to the Provincial League championship team before it was merged with the Metropolitan League before the beginning of The 1969-70 season. This new league became the Quebec Junior A League, the current QMJHL. Since then, the trophy has physically grown, being transformed in height, with two additional bases added under the original Cup, in order to attach the name plates of each year’s winners. The attached photographs show the progression between the current trophy and the one Guy Lafleur received from President Robert LeBel in the early 1970s.

  • Most titles – the Olympiques (Hull / Gatineau) have hoisted the precious trophy most often, winning it seven times. In 2008, they passed the 1970’s Quebec Remparts, who were 6-time winners.
