The Hockey News' QMJHL Jersey Rankings

Zoom Image

It’s not fair to say Quebec teams are different than in the rest of Canada, because the QMJHL also has squads from America and the Canadian Maritimes. Having said that, the ‘Q’ does march to its own beat when it comes to colors and designs, which is good in some cases and bad in others.

Big thanks to River City Sports for helping us with pictures, as the CHL is bringing in new Reebok sweaters for 2009-10 and photos were unavailable at the time of voting.

While logos (last year’s competition) are certainly a big part of the hockey jersey, we also considered shoulder patches, striping and piping – so teams gained and lost points based on those factors. You'll also notice both home and away jerseys are used to represent the teams. Simply put, we took the one we liked best out of the two. Third or alternate jersey weren't considered.

Once you've taken in our rankings, head over to the voting page to select your favorite from our top 10 and help it to move on in the Jersey Tournament that will follow the rankings of each league’s jerseys (find the rankings and tournament schedule on The Hockey News Jersey Rankings and Tournament Central page).
