Team program

The Rosemont National was a team of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League that existed from 1969 to 1971. The team moved several times since and now exists as the Acadie-Bathurst Titan.

The Rosemont National was one of the founding clubs of the QMJHL, along with the Drummondville Rangers, Quebec Remparts, Shawinigan Bruins, Sherbrooke Castors, Sorel Éperviers, Trois-Rivières Ducs, Cornwall Royals, Laval Saints, Saint-Jérôme Alouettes and Verdun Maple Leafs. It was installed in a neighbourhood of Montreal, Rosemont-La Petite Patrie, hence its name. They played in the Paul Sauve Arena.

The team moved a mere two seasons after its inauguration to Laval, to become the Laval Voisins. It replaced the Saints, who had folded the previous season.
