The Quebec Nordiques (French: Nordiques de Québec, pronounced [n%C9%94%CA%81d%CD%A1z%C9%AAk] in Quebec French, /nɔːrˈdiːks/ in Canadian English, meaning "Northmen" or "Northerners") were a Canadian professional ice hockey team based in Quebec City, Quebec. The Nordiques played in the World Hockey Association (1972–79) and the National Hockey League (1979–95). The franchise was relocated to Denver, Colorado, in 1995, and renamed the Colorado Avalanche.

The Nordiques hold the distinction of being the only major professional sports team to have been based in Quebec City in the modern era, and one of only two ever; the other, the Quebec Bulldogs, played one season in the NHL in 1919–20.

The National Hockey League (NHL) franchise is found at Quebec Nordiques (NHL).
