As is our tradition, with the start of the hockey season we launch a new version of our Annual Quebec Major Junior Hockey League Media Guide. This season's 2011-2012 edition is again quite complete.
Prepared for the most part since 1998 by Denis Demers, the chief statistician of the QMJHL, this book of 352 pages is intended as a great reference tool to track daily activities of the QMJHL.
All players, goalies and coaches who will be involved in the league this season are listed along with their stats along with regular season and playoff leaders. Obviously, the front page is dedicated to the 2010-11 championship team, Saint John Sea Dogs.
Fill with current and older photos, the guide is also a record book. Among other fun facts you will learn that Rouyn-Noranda head coach, André Tourigny, will begin his 10th season with the same team in the QMJHL, which equals Denis Francoeur's record who led Shawinigan for 10 seasons.
This 2011-2012 Guide will be available on CD in the QMJHL arenas in the next couple of days in a high resolution PDF file. You can also download the guide through our site as of today.
