The Drummondville Voltigeurs took their first steps in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League in 1982.

After a difficult first season, the team enjoyed a string of success, racking-up six straight seasons with a .500 or better record.

René Corbet (1993) was the first Voltigeurs' player to win a League scoring title with 148 points. Three other players won the Jean-Béliveau Trophy: Daniel Brière (1995-96 | 163 points), Yannick Riendeau (2008-09 | 126 points) and Sean Couturier (2009-10 | 96 points).

Yannick Riendeau - President Cup, 2009In 2008-09, the team beat its own records, when Yannick Riendeau was one of the greatest leaders in franchise history.

At the end of the regular season, the Voltigeurs won their first championship title, with 112 points and 54 wins.

And finally, on May 12, 2009, the Voltigeurs hoisted the President Cup for the first time in franchise history in front of a sell-out crowd at the Marcel Dionne Centre. It was a seven-game series to remember between Drummondville and Shawinigan.
