History[edit | edit source]

The Victoriaville Bruins were a junior team.

They played in the Provincial Junior League (Quebec) from 1961-65.

They were a farm team of the NHL's Boston Bruins. Many of their players (including all those listed below) went on to the Niagara Falls Flyers of the Ontario Hockey Association.

The Bruins won the league playoff title in all the four seasons that they played. In 1961-62, however, the first place team Quebec Citadelles advanced to the 1961-62 Quebec Junior Playoffs. In 1962-63 the Quebec Amateur Hockey Association decided not to enter the Memorial Cup playoffs.

Therefore the Bruins never entered the Memorial Cup playoffs.

The team folded in 1965 due to competition from the senior Victoriaville Tigres.
