Guy Rousseau was born December 21, 1934 in Montreal, Quebec. After spending five years in the Quebec Junior Hockey League with four different teams and taking part in two Memorial Cups in 1954 and 1955, Guy Rousseau made his NHL debut with the Montreal Canadiens during the 1954-55 season.

A QJHL First Team All-Star in 1952, Guy Rousseau made his NHL debut while still a member of the QJHL. Rousseau played in two games with Montreal, scoring his first career NHL point, before he was sent back to juniors.

The brother of Bobby and Roland Rousseau joined the Quebec Hockey League's Montreal Royals in 1955-56 leading them to the Edinburgh Trophy (WHL/QHL Challenge Series). Rousseau returned to the Royals the following year, where he spent the majority of the season while playing in two games with the Canadiens.

The Royals traded Rousseau to QHL's Chicoutimi Sagueneens where he spent the 1957-58 season, and was a QHL First Team All-Star before joining the AHL's Rochester Americans in 1958. Rousseau spent three years with Rochester, while having his NHL rights traded to Toronto in the summer of 1960.

Following his three years in Rochester, Toronto (Rochester-AHL) traded Rousseau to Montreal (Quebec-AHL) during the off season. Rousseau played two seasons with the AHL's Quebec Aces before joining the AHL's Cleveland Barons for the 1963-64 season.

Rousseau returned to the Aces in 1964-65 before joining the Quebec Senior Hockey League the following year where he spent four seasons; 1965-66 in Sherbrooke and 1966-1969 in St-Hyacinthe.

In 1969, Guy Rousseau was suspended for life by the Quebec Amateur Hockey Association for assaulting referee Jim Kierans during a QSHL game vs. the Ottawa Nationals.

Throughout his NHL career, Guy Rousseau played in four games, managing only one assist.
