When Will Quebec Return to the NHL?

When Will Quebec Return to the NHL?

Quebec has not had a professional hockey team since the Quebec Nordiques relocated to Colorado after the 1995 season.

In my opinion, Quebec deserves an NHL team.

Quebec City opened the Centre Videotron in 2015 which seats 18,259.

As of right now the highest level of hockey in Quebec City is the Quebec Remparts who play in the QMJHL, a major junior hockey league many NHL players come from.

The difficulty Quebec City has with getting an NHL team is the fact that they are a city smaller than Winnipeg, although Winnipeg’s rink is smaller than the Centre Videotron by about 2,000 seats.

With a venue already built, Quebec City would make a great place for a relocation team, however I feel immediate success would greatly help their chances of surviving.
