The first Quebec team to win its way to the RBC Cup since 2006, the Cobras de Terrebonne followed it up with a second-consecutive regular-season title in the LHJQ. The Cobras ran off nine wins in a row to open their schedule and never looked back, finishing eight points up on Longueuil. Terrebonne was consistent from start to finish, posting win streaks of eight (Sept. 7-Oct. 1), seven (Oct. 22-Nov. 12) and 10 (Nov. 24-Jan. 5), and never losing consecutive games. The Cobras finished with a ridiculous +206 goal differential, averaging more than seven goals a game (347 in 49 games), with scoring champion Brendan Hamelin (36-86—122) the first of three Terrebonne skaters in the top six, and six in the top 20.
