The 1997–98 QMJHL season was the 29th season in the history of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. The Quebec Remparts name is revived after twelve years when the Beauport Harfangs change identities. The QMJHL continues to grow in eastern markets with an expansion team in Baie-Comeau and the relocating of the Granby Prédateurs relocated to Cape Breton.
The league inaugurates the Philips Plaque, awarded to the player with the best faceoff percentage. The Ford Cups are renamed the Telus Cups, one each for the offensive and defensive players of the year.
Fifteen teams played 70 games each in the schedule. The Quebec Remparts finished first overall in the regular season winning their first Jean Rougeau Trophy, since the original name was revived. The Val-d'Or Foreurs won their first President's Cup, defeating the Rimouski Océanic in the finals.

As in a season of autumn.
