January 20, 2017
The Montreal Royal announced Kevin Quinlan and Felix Daigle as team captains for the 2017 season. The captainship role will transfer from Yoland Cabot, Charles Bariteau, and Philippe Thivierge, who were the team captains for the 2016 season. Montreal finished last season with a 6-8 record, good for fifth place in the East Division
After a quiet-but-effective 2015 campaign, Daigle emerged as one of the Royal's premier playmakers during the 2016 season. He led the team in completions (579, second in the league in '16) and blocks (21), while also chipping in 24 goals.

Quinlan set the AUDL single-game scoring record (19) on June 4, 2016 by throwing nine assists and catching 10 goals in a loss to the Ottawa Outlaws.
