Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Patrick Lebeau
Left-winger Patrick Lebeau was a top scorer in junior, the minors and Europe but only played a handful of NHL games for three different organizations in the early 90s. He also rounded out his career by competing internationally for Canada.

Born in St. Jerome, Quebec, the younger brother of Stephane Lebeau was chosen 167th overall by the Montreal Canadiens in 1989 after he accumulated 149 points with the QMJHL's Shawinigan Cataractes and St-Jean Lynx. He returned to junior where he led the league with 106 assists and 174 points while competing for the Victoriaville Tigres and earned a place on the first all-star team.

The young forward notched two points in a pair of appearances for Montreal in 1990-91 but was utilized chiefly on the AHL's Fredericton Canadiens. After scoring 50 goals for the farm club that year he was presented the Dudley "Red" Garrett Memorial Award as the AHL's top rookie and was voted on to the second all-star team. In the second half of the 1991-92 season Lebeau joined the Canadian national team and participated in the Albertville Olympics.

In September, 1992 Lebeau was traded to the Calgary Flames and played one game for his new club. The rest of the season was spent with the IHL's Salt Lake Golden Eagles where he registered 100 points. Prior to the 1993-94 season the high scoring winger came to terms with the expansion Florida Panthers. Once again he saw most of his ice time in the minors and scored 47 goals for the Cincinnati Cyclones of the "I".

Lebeau joined the Zurich club of the Swiss League in 1994-95 and averaged nearly two points per game in his new surroundings. He later played for Dusseldorfer EG of Germany and Switzerland's HC La Chaux-de-Fonds before joining the Pittsburgh Penguins for eight games in 1998-99. Lebeau then joinied Ambri-Piotta and Zurich of the Swiss League before joining the Frankfurt Lions in 2002-03.
