The Trois-Rivières Draveurs ("Raftmen") were a junior ice hockey team playing in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. They played at the Colisée de Trois-Rivières, in Trois-Rivières, Quebec. The team was originally known as the Trois-Rivières Ducs ("Dukes") and were a founding member of the QMJHL in 1969. They were renamed the Draveurs in 1974.

The Draveurs finished first place in the QMJHL in 1977-78 with 101 points, and again in 1978-79 with 122 points. Those two seasons, Trois-Rivières won consecutive President's Cups. The Draveurs were also league finalists in 1980-81, 1981-82, and 1991-92, during the final season in Trois-Rivières.

The team moved to Sherbrooke, in 1992, where they were renamed the Sherbrooke Faucons, and later, the Sherbrooke Castors. They are today the Lewiston Maineiacs.
