So then....what is the equivalent of JR A in Quebec? Where do players play who want to keep their eligibility or bubble Major Junior players?

The QJAAAHL is technically Jr. A, it just isn't as strong as it should be.
I believe there were a grand total of zero NCAA commitments from the league this season and the league has never won a national title, so that shows you the overall quality.

Prospects usually continue to play in the QMAAA (one of the strongest, if not the strongest Midget/Major Midget league in the country) until they age out, then move on to any number of places if they can't crack the QMJHL: QJAAAHL, QCHL (Collégial AAA, which seems to be an emerging option), US prep schools, or a Jr. A league in another province.

It'd be nice to see Hockey Québec attempt to fix the league, especially now that some of their other changes are seemingly bearing fruit and increasing the depth of the player pool.
The one major issue that I see that wouldn't be easy to resolve would be how to retain NCAA bound players that need to take English classes to meet eligibility requirements.

Almost every team in the Q has players who played for a AAA team. As for college, look at the Canadian college commitments. Most players speak French, so you won't see much US college recruiting there. But a number of players have gone on or back and forth from AAA to the Q teams. If the guy who started this post is a trainer, why would he start this ?

Most players do not age out at midget aaa. 17 year olds do not want to play midget aaa and the maaa don't want them either as they prefer to take chances with younger players.So those that can't go outside the province because of schooling will play jaaa - look at the rosters they were pretty much all maaa players or older major juniors who no longer made the cut .Collegial are usually those kids that played maa or juvenile .

Agreed with a lot of the stuff written on this thread about the pitfalls of this league. But I am surprised geography has not come up yet - it's too Montreal-centric.

I for one can't understand, despite everything that has already been brought up, how a viable 12-16 team Tier 2 Jr.A league cannot thrive in this province. The most successful Jr.A leagues in Canada succeed by utilizing markets that don't have a higher calibre team also playing within. Quebec has cities that would fit this model... I guess the will and/or the money are missing to make it happen.

Depends on which teams cause I know the St. Lawrence Lions are made up of about 90% of kids who played Midget AAA previously. I'm not sure about other teams in the league though but again the Lions are always a strong team in the league and could probably compete against some Junior AAA teams.

Nonsense. The Lions couldn't beat the sisters' team at St. Therese.

It is really bad hockey. I saw it last year and they are much slower than Junior Major, the passes are sloppy etc.

I don't think it makes a huge difference, but isn't there also a rule that disallows most 17 year olds from playing in the league? I know in the MHL in the Maritimes guys can play at 16, but in Quebec they have to back to midget. I was under the impression this was also the case for 17s born after September but I could be wrong. The league does seem to stick out like a sore thumb compared to the other Jr. A leagues in Canada.

Quebec Midget AAA allows up to five 17 year olds per team roster although teams may play without any.

Also in certain regions of Canada with Jr. A there is no Midget AAA.

Both factors impact the strength of Jr. A in Quebec.

I have been watching the scores in this league and think you're correct. Last night most teams played no defense and 6 goals was a normal score. One team scored 12. That is not the sign of anything more than shinney hockey.

Unlike the 11 to 10 defensive struggle cats vs huskies last night.
Did a little math.
Look at the q stats -close to 7 goals a game in the reg season on a average of 62 shots per game (added all the shots of all the goalies)The lhjaaq just over 9 goals on 70 shots a game per average. So you are talking about 4 shots a game per team average more in the lhjaaaq.

That's a very interesting study. Looks like defense missing a lot. The good news is that Sherbrooke is ranked #2 in Canada currently.
