Cantonniers de Magog were crowned champions of the Telos Cup on Sunday. For the first time since 2000, they arrived Monday in Magog as Canadian champions. About a hundred supporters were waiting for them. “We were happy to receive the cup yesterday. The young people were exhausted, but very happy,” said Governor and General Manager of Magog County, Christian Lord.

The team reached the final of the Canadian Championship in 2018, 2019 and 2022, but lost every time. Except that the Cantonniers are recognized in the U18 AAA Hockey Development League as a team that performs well. “The Cantonese team is a very good organization in our league. It is a model to follow and I have always said that frankly,” confirmed the president of the Quebec Hockey Development Association M18 AAA, Yannick Lévesque.

The Cantonniers' victory also had a positive impact on younger players such as Harfangs du Triolet players in Sherbrooke. “Everyone wants to be associated with a winning team, that's clear. You're excited to coach, you're excited to train hard, you're excited to make sacrifices,” said Sherbrooke Hockey Coach Jude Valley.
