With just a few days until the Major Junior Leagues in Canada and the Northern U.S. crowns this season's Memorial Cup Champion.
The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League got their 2010-2011 season off to an early start as the league has revelled the schedule for next season as the season will get underway September 9 as the defending QMJHL Champion Moncton Wildcats will play host the Baie-Comeau Drakkar who finished 2nd to last in the entire Regular Season.
The schedule will be playing just over 80% of its games on the weekends to preserve the Academic Commitments of many of their players as a majority of them in this and in nearly junior league is involved in high school or some kind of junior/community college while their not playing.
In addition to the schedule, the QMJHL has changed up the Divisions again as the league never seems to be happy with a format that they can be happy with. Last year, they had 4 divisions with 3 divisions of 4 teams with the Maritime Division staying the same with their 6 teams that are located in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island (P.E.I.).
So this means that the Central Division is all gone as the Drummondville Voltigeurs and Shawinigan Cataractes will be moving to the West. Heading East will be the league's only U.S.A. Team in the Lewiston Maineiacs & Victoriaville Tigers as well. The rest of the East & West Divisions along with the Maritime Division will be unchanged.
