Here, we have an expression: on niaise pas avec la puck, which means that we don’t waste time or hesitate or fool around. This is especially true during the Cataractes hockey season, which is a serious family affair. Yes, you get it, the people of Shawinigan have a deep attachment to their hockey team. To go to the Centre Gervais Auto to see our Cataractes play, you don’t have to be a big fan of our national sport! Just let yourself be carried away by the fans and their contagious joy. We leave the arena with a smile on our face. Go Cat’s go!
The Cat’s, as they are affectionately known, are the oldest franchise in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL).
Psst. Between us, many have a crush on Thomas Hawk… Did you know that in Shawinigan, we have the best mascot in the QMJHL? Hilarious, athletic, drooling, you have to see him go to scold the fans of the opposing team or even do the “leap of death” between 2 sections! We even surprise ourselves sometimes to miss the match because we are hypnotized by its prowess!
