THN.com’s QMJHL Logo Rankings

A mixed bag of old and new, the ‘Q’ boasts a few very nice logos and several confusing ones.

This league has more emblems that could be a matter of personal taste than any other circuit, perhaps because the new are so new and the old so old. It seems as though teams only change their looks if they move out of town.

Over the month of August, THN will rank the logos of 16 North American leagues. Click HERE to go to THN’s Logo Rankings Central page and click HERE to vote for your top QMJHL logo as part of our tournament to discover the fans’ choice for the top logo in hockey.

THN’s QUEBEC LEAGUE LOGO RANKINGS
RK.
LOGO
TEAM
THE SCOOP
1

Rimouski
Oceanic

It’s a battleship painted up like a shark, slashing through waves. Tough to beat that, even without the cool color scheme.
2
Rouyn-Noranda

Huskies
A baying husky, no more, no less. Looks great on a hat and doesn’t try to do too much.
3
Acadie-Bathurst

Titan
This has warrior written all over it, with the Olde English font, Viking horns and shield.
4
Saint John

Sea Dogs
One of the newer logos in the Q, nothing else looks like the sleek Sea Dog.
5
Chicoutimi

Sagueneens
More about the colors than anything, the ringed crown gives the fine lettering a boost.
6
Baie-Comeau

Drakkar
How can you not like a team whose name translates to “Viking Ship” and delivers just that in its crest?
7
Lewiston

MAINEiacs
He’s certainly a maniac and definitely unique. Plus, the stick forms an ‘L’ to go with the man’s ‘M’ body. Nice touch.
8
Quebec

Remparts
Going for an old-school flavor, the new Remparts take cues from their 1970s forebearers.
9
Cape Breton

Screaming Eagles
A lot of words on this emblem, but the eagle is daunting and it works.
10
Gatineau

Olympiques
The flaming torch has a certain majesty to it and looks good on the front of a sweater.
11
Val-d’Or

Foreurs
Classic and simple, or boring? The pick-axe/tree combination spurned a divisive debate.
12
Drummondville

Voltigeurs
Slightly cartoonish, but still original, the Voltigeur falls in the middle of the pack.
13
Shawinigan

Cataractes
The Cataractes have a mascot who is theirs alone; too bad it isn’t drawn a little better.
14
Victoriaville

Tigres
A lackluster tiger and part of an overwhelming legion of animals biting through sticks.
15
Moncton

Wildcats
Not the greatest wildcat, plus it looks like it’s jumping out of the player’s chest on the jersey.
16
PEI

Rocket
Yeah, this team used to be in Montreal, making the Rocket Richard references (notice the comet-tail No. 9) cool, but Maurice never hung out with Anne of Green Gables.
17
Halifax

Mooseheads
For our American and international readers, Moosehead is a popular beer in Canada. The hockey team uses their corporate logo.
18
Montreal

Juniors
We know they were going for ‘simple,’ but this is non-existent.
