The Gatineau Olympiques are a major junior ice hockey team playing in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League out of Gatineau, Quebec. The Olympiques play out of the Robert Guertin Centre. The franchise was granted membership in the QMJHL during 1973, then known as the Hull Festivals. The Olympiques have appeared in the Memorial Cup seven times, winning once in 1997.

History

Before joining the "Q", the team was a member of the Central Junior A Hockey League, known originally as the Hull Castors but later as the Hull Hawks. Originally Hull and the CJHL were eligible to compete for the Memorial Cup, the Major Junior crown, but were relegated to Tier II Junior "A" in 1970. Three seasons before joining the QMJHL in 1973 they became the Hull Festivals, and in 1976, they became the Hull Olympiques; the team name was changed to the Gatineau Olympiques one year after the city of Hull was amalgamated into Gatineau in 2002.

The Olympiques share a junior hockey market with the Ottawa 67's, across the Ottawa River. Pre-season games between the two teams were a regular occurrence from 1975 to 1986. [Citation |newspaper=Ottawa Citizen |title=67's outwork Olympiques |date=January 24, 2000|pages=p. C3 |last=Yzerman |first=Chris] The teams have played interleague regular-season home and home games in the 1999–2000, 2000–01, 2001-02 and 2002–03 seasons since. [Citation |newspaper=Ottawa Citizen |date=June 20, 2003 |title=Sidelines |pages= p. B8]

The Olympiques have won the President's Cup seven times, most recently in 2007-08. The team has been to four Memorial Cup finals, losing three (1986, 2003 and 2004) and winning the 1997 Memorial Cup which they also hosted.
