The Beauce Jaros were a rare Canadian team in the 1970s American minor league system, from St. Georges-de-Beauc, Quebec. They played a season and a half in the NAHL. Their first season was wildly successful on the ice, despite ultimately coming up short. They won the regular season title in the NAHL and made the playoff final, only to lose to the Philadelphia Firebirds. Their player-coach Jocelyn Hardy became the first professional player to score 200+ points in a season, as he won MVP. In their second season, they would fold in December 1976.
