The Sherbrooke Castors or Sherbrooke Beavers (in English) was the name of two different junior ice hockey teams in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Both franchises played at the Palais des Sports in Sherbrookemarker, Quebecmarker.

Original Castors

The Sherbrooke Castors (1969-1982) moved to Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebecmarker in 1982, named the Saint-Jean Castors. In 1989 they were renamed the Saint-Jean Lynx. In 1995 the team moved to Rimouskimarker, Quebecmarker to become the Rimouski Océanic.

This original Castors franchise won the President's Cup in 1975, 1977 and 1982. The second incarnation never won. The Castors played in the Memorial Cup in those three years, and came closest to winning in 1982, when they lost in the tournament final to the Kitchener Rangers.

Sherbrooke Faucons/Castors

The second Sherbrooke Castors team (1998-2003), originally the Trois-Rivières Draveurs, franchise moved to Sherbrooke in 1992 as the Sherbrooke Faucons ("Falcons"). The Faucons were renamed to Castors in 1998 and moved to Lewiston, Mainemarker in 2003, to be renamed the Lewiston Maineiacs.
