Centre Hec Lepine spent the 1925-26 season with the Montreal Canadiens. He was a fine goal scorer in the Montreal senior league and also played briefly in the Can-Am loop in a relatively short career.

The older brother of Pit Lepine was born in St. Anne de Bellevue, Quebec. He was a standout in Montreal on the senior Royals and Hochelega teams and led all goal scorers with 15 in seven games during the 1923-24 season. After excelling with the Fort Pitt Hornets of the USAHA, Lepine joined the Canadiens as a free agent for one season.

Lepine scored five goals and played solid defence in 33 games for Montreal. He formed a solid line with his brother and Wildor Larochelle. He retired at the end of the 1926-27 season after scoring six goals for the Providence Reds of the Can-Am League.
