Schedule for final stage of 2023 QMJHL Cup unveiled


The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League announced today that the final portion of the 2022-23 season’s QMJHL Cup will be played from April 26 to 30 at the Centre d’excellence Sports Rousseau in Boisbriand, Quebec.

This competition will regroup the top 40 prospects from the Atlantic provinces, who will be split into two separate teams, Team Crosby and Team MacKinnon. As for the province of Quebec, it will be represented by its top 80 prospects who will be assigned to four different squads: Team Bergeron, Team Bossy, Team Lafleur and Team Lemieux.

All six teams will have on-ice practices on April 26, before playing a three-game round robin over the next three days. The final three matchups will be held on April 30 and will pit the clubs against each other based on their tournament standings: #6 vs. #5, #4 vs. #3, and the grand finale #2 vs. #1.


This event represents one of the final opportunities for QMJHL scouts to evaluate players in action ahead of the 2023 Entry Draft presented by Fenplast that will be held on June 10 in Sherbrooke, QC. It is also a great showcase for prospects looking to prove their worth to some of the brass behind Hockey Canada’s Under-17 program.

The rosters for the six squads taking part in the third and final phase of the 2023 QMJHL Cup will be announced in the coming weeks. The selection of the players will be made by the QMJHL’s CSR, under the supervision of Director Pierre Cholette and his team of scouts.


The first portion of the 2023 QMJHL Cup took place last October 7 to 9 in Dieppe, New Brunswick. Each branch of the Atlantic Provinces (New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland & Labrador) built a roster that featured the top U16 players from their territory. This initial stage of the QMJHL Cup was won by Team Nova Scotia.

The second leg of this year’s QMJHL Cup was held during the M18 AAA Challenge, from December 14 to 18, in Saguenay, Quebec. The event was comprised of six teams: two teams representing the top U15 prospects selected by Hockey Quebec, and four teams consisting of the top 80 prospects born in 2007 that come from both the LHEQ and RSEQ leagues.

The QMJHL salutes Hockey Canada, Hockey Quebec, Hockey New Brunswick, Hockey Nova Scotia, Hockey PEI, Hockey NL, as well as Quebec’s U18 AAA Developmental Hockey League for their collaboration with the QMJHL Cup.
