Right-winger Pete Bellefeuille was a fine skater and goal scorer during the 1920s. He was one of a relatively small group of individuals who played for the Toronto franchise when it changed its name from the St. Pats to the Maple Leafs.
Born in Trois Rivieres, Quebec, "The Fleeting Frenchman" played senior hockey in his home town and Quebec City for three years before joining the NOHA's Iroquois Falls Paper club 1923-24. After leading the league in goals, he headed south to play in the OHA senior loop with the London AAA squad.
Bellefeuille impressed with 14 goals for the Toronto St. Pats in 1925-26. The next year he started the season in Toronto and was around for the switch to blue and white uniforms and the Maple Leafs sobriquet. Before the end of the schedule the crafty forward was sent to the Detroit Cougars for Slim Halderson. During the next two years he remained in the Motor City with the Cougars or the Olympics of the Can Pro League.
After notching five goals in 1929-30, Bellefeuille never returned to the NHL. He covered the continent with stops in Seattle on the PCHL's Eskimos as well as the IAHL's Syracuse Stars. Part way through the 1931-32 season he returned to Trois-Rivieres to suit up for the QPHL's Renards. After spending a year away from hockey he returned in 1933-34 to play one last game as an emergency replacement for the Quebec Beavers of the Can-Am League.
