The Saint-Georges Cool FM 103.5 is a professional hockey team based in Saint-Georges, Quebec, Canada. The team is part of the Ligue Nord-Américaine de Hockey (LNAH), and plays at the Centre Sportif Lacroix-Dutil.

History[edit | edit source]

The team was founded in 1996-97 as the Rive-Sud Jackals in the former Quebec Semi-Pro Hockey League (QSPHL). The Jackals became the Saint-Georges Garaga in 1998-99, when relocating to Saint-Georges, Quebec. The Garaga dominated Canadian senior hockey in the early 2000s, winning the 2002 Allan Cup and the 2004 Allan Cup. In 2005, the team was purchased by businessman Jean-Paul Blais, who also owns the CRS Express trucking company, and renamed the team Saint-Georges CRS Express. Blais sold the team to investors in 2010, and the team was renamed after a local radio station, CKRB-FM.

The last previous professional hockey team in the region were the Beauce Jaros from 1975-1977.

2010 Futura Cup[edit | edit source]

Garaga made the 2010 as a #4 seed and defeated the Saguenay Marquis four games to two.[1] Garaga scored 38 goals during the series. Three of the four victories against Saguenay were games that Garaga scored 8 or more goals.
