The Sherbrooke Phoenix is the last team to join the League through the 2012 expansion.
We'll all remember the midget player drafted, Daniel Audette. His 237 points to life with the blue an beige jersey remain the best total to life by a player from that team in the regular season.
Judes Vallée was the team's head-coach from 2012-13 to the mid-2015-16 season. He led the team to its best campaign to life, ranking 8th in the standings with 36 wins and 32 losses.
During the 2016-17 regular season, the captain Carl Neill, played in his 289th game with the team, a new franchise record.
With two great consecutive seasons, with totals of 64 and 69 points, the defenseman Thomas Grégoire (PHOTO | #2) finished first as the Team Top Scorer in 2016-17 and 2017-18.
In April 2018, the Phoenix won its very first playoff round, 4-3 in a best of seven series played against the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies.
The 2019-20* was outstanding for the team coached by Stéphane Julien, and managed by GM Jocelyn Thibault. No less than 106 points, the 1st position in the League with a points percentage of .841. The team broke a lot of their own records, but also wrote its name in the League Record Book; with an efficiency of 36.5% on power-play situation (73 goals / 200 attempts), Sherbrooke overpassed the 36.3% mark established in 1973-74 by the Sorel Eperviers.
For the Sherbrooke Phoenix, the 2021-22 regular season was marked by the offensive performances of Joshua Roy and Xavier Parent. The two inseparables both surpassed the 100-point mark and scored 51 goals each. Roy won the Jean Beliveau Trophy as the QMJHL scoring champion with 119 points.
The many fans of the Sherbrooke Phoenix (111,448 spectators - a new record for the franchise in a single season) got their money's worth in 2022-23. In the regular season, Sherbrooke's players filled the opposing net like never before, scoring 317 goals. Stéphane Julien was named Head Coach and General Manager of the Year, as his club collected 50 wins and 105 points (3rd in the League, just 4 points behind the Remparts in 1st place). In the playoffs, after taking a 2-0 lead in the semi-final against Halifax, the Phoenix finally lost their final 4 games of the series to the mighty Mooseheads.
The team's notables over the years include: Jocelyn Thibault, Daniel Audette, Jérémy Roy, Carl Neill, Thomas Grégoire, Félix Robert, Stéphane Julien, Xavier Parent, Tyson Hinds, Joshua Roy...
