Val-D'or 3 (7gp)
St. John's (14gp)
Quebec (2gp)

2008

2009

Gatineau (3gp)

2010 Draft - 1 player Stefan Matteau who never played with the team that drafted him, he played with the team that his dad coached with & was released by them for being an idiot. He wasn't reporting to the Q until his dad was a coach on a Q team so does he really count?



So for quick totals:
Val-d'Or - 6
Saint John - 5
Rimouski - 5
Drummondville - 4
Lewiston - 4
Moncton - 4
Quebec - 3
Cape Breton - 2
Victoriaville - 2
Acadie-Bathurst - 2
Chicoutimi - 2
St. John's - 2
Baie-Comeau - 2
PEI - 1
Gatineau - 1
Rouyn-Noranda - 1



Sorry Halifax but you have to fold your team...



Edit: I'll just add a blurb about this, my stance on this is obvious with the above there ^^ but I'll say it anyway. NHL production has nothing to do with QMJHL drafting. That's like saying Ben Duffy was a bad QMJHL draft pick because he's not going to be an NHLer. He's been a top QMJHL player for 3 years now...
By what metric would you measure the success of the PEI Rocket?

Regular season record?

Playoff victories?

Record of developing players (alumni in NHL)?


The team had their best season this year, out of ten seasons. They finished seventh overall. And lost in the first round. And that was considered successful.

If that impresses anyone, well...

With sixty CHL franchises, has there been one worse over the past decade?
