As in like a feeder to the Q? Or is it a completely different entity which players can get drafted to the NHL from?

Hmmm. Smells like change. Any negatives about this? read the article and it seems like all positive stuff.

Keeps me wondering what schools in New Brunswick will get into this, it's a very good idea.

EDIT: Probably Rothesay Netherwood (near Saint-John), it is the only prep school that has a hockey program in New Brunswick (that I can think of). Unless public schools are able to join the new league, I can't think of any other school that would join this from New Brunswick.

Everything to make Hockey Québec pissed is fine with me. Great idea that I hope will materialize in having our kids become better hockey players.
So far, it's just a great news!

I hadn't seen your thread and started one on the same topic.

Anyway, for those who don't read French, here's a summary:

In a nutshell, he says that the creation of the Ligue de hockey préparatoire scolaire will be announced shortly. The new league activities would start as early as next fall.

According to the article, the league would be modeled after U.S. Prep Schools, it would be sponsored by NHL players and ex-players and operated by "credible hockey people" (Dominique Ricard, Drummondvile's GM in the Q is the only name I'm familiar with).

For the first year, the league would have U15 and U 17 teams in Terrebonne, Trois-Rivières, Lévis, Québec and at the Hockey Academy in Cornwall. Bishop would also have a U17 team.

The plan is to play 30-40 games a year with emphasis on quality training time.

Terrebonne (their hockey program has been running for a couple of years) will also ice a U19 team playing again prep schools from Lake Placid, Burlington, Rochester, New-Brunswick, Cornwall, Albany et one from Indiana.

I guess we'll have to wait and see how the whole thing develops, but according to Leclerc this project has the potential to seriously hurt the monopoly of Hockey-Québec, to the point where they allegedly tried to convince some of the participating schools to stay away from this initiative

It's early to say what could come out of all this in time, but it's interesting to see some people trying to shake the structure of hockey development in the province.

Sadly this will become a league where people like Tremblay and Grégoire will try as hell to turn it into a non contact league...

Will it be adequately funded or will it collapse?

That's why i'm worried about any league with a school association. Quebec hockey players need more physicality, not less.

If it's true that ex-NHL'ers will closely look at the development of that league, I don't see it happening as non-physical the players were (see Stéphan Lebeau) they're not idiots at the same time.

I'm very happy about that. Hockey Québec is a joke since a couple of years.

As an example, a midget player that is from the South-Shore of MTL have to pay 5k $ only for the private school that have the Midget AAA team in this territory.

You can't devellop a good base of players if only rich people can have their kids play high caliber hockey.

I don't know why the league would become a non-contact one because of schools associated to it. The football leagues are all healthy and, last I checked, they allow contact!!!

I love this project.

Finalement! Hope that la Polyvalente de l'Île in Gatineau goes and joins the league, to compete with the midget AAA program put forth by Alain Sanscartier at Nicolas-Gatineau.
