Gélinas played his junior hockey for the Val-d’Or Foreurs of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and received the Emile Bouchard Trophy as the league’s Best Defenceman during the 2013/14 season. That season the Foreurs claimed the QMJHL Championship with Gélinas posting 23 goals and 69 assists, good for 92 points in 67 games.
