AFTER A STELLAR JUNIOR CAREER, STÉPHAN LEBEAU REACHED THE 15-GOAL MARK IN EACH OF HIS FOUR COMPLETE SEASONS IN MONTREAL.

After accepting a contract offer from the Habs in 1988, Stephan Lebeau had an outstanding professional debut with the Sherbrooke Canadiens. With Benoit Brunet on his wing, Lebeau netted 70 goals and 134 points in 78 games. In addition to being named the AHL’s rookie of the year, Lebeau was also the league’s top scorer and MVP.

He had previously enjoyed an outstanding junior career with the Shawinigan Cataractes, ranking second overall in QMJHL history in goals and points, behind Mike Bossy and Patrick Lefebvre, respectively.

In 1989-90, his first NHL season, Lebeau scored 15 goals but coach Pat Burns was not pleased with his defensive play. He increased his offensive production over the next two years with a pair of 20-goal seasons and 80 points in 1992-93. He added six points in 13 playoff games to help the Canadiens win the 24th Stanley Cup in team history.

In 1993-94, he was traded to the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in exchange for Ron Tugnutt. After two seasons in California, including one shortened by a lockout, Lebeau went to Europe to continue his career in Switzerland. He spent the next seven years playing for HC Lugano, HC La Chaux-de-Fonds and Ambri-Piotta.

After retiring in 2000-01, Lebeau became the head coach of the Midget AAA Magog Cantonniers, and then held the same position with Victoriaville of the QMJHL. In June 2008, he accepted the challenge of developing the hockey program at Bishop’s College School in Lennoxville.
