Rimouski Oceanic

 The Rimouski Océanic are a junior ice hockey team in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. The franchise was granted for the 1969–70 season as the Sherbrooke Castors. The Castors played in Sherbrooke from 1969 to 1982, before moving to Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec in 1982 as the Saint-Jean Castors. In 1989 they were renamed the Saint-Jean Lynx. In 1995 the team moved to Rimouski, Quebec to become the Rimouski Océanic.

Their logo is an ocean liner with a set of teeth on the bow, jutting out of waves creating a shape that suggests a fleur-de-lis. The team colours are royal blue, navy blue, and white. Their home arena is the Colisée de Rimouski. The team's sweater has proven popular in the USA, as Reebok has issued it with superstar Sidney Crosby's number 87 on it.

The team won the QMJHL championship in the 1999–00 season and went on to win the Memorial Cup that year, with a team featuring future NHL star Brad Richards.

The team is currently one of the more well-known teams in the Canadian Hockey League, particularly because of the addition of Sidney Crosby in the 2003–04 season. Crosby's 135 points for the club set a new record for a 16-year-old in the QMJHL and was second only to Wayne Gretzky in that particular age-group for all Canadian Hockey. Other notable NHL alumni include Vincent Lecavalier, Brad Richards, Ryane Clowe and Michael Frolík.
