Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Stephane Beauregard
Netminder Stephane Beauregard was a top prospect as amateur but was strictly a part time player in the NHL. After his five year NHL tenure he enjoyed a fair bit of success in the minors.

The native of Cowansville, Quebec, was a much talked about star in junior. After winning 38 games with the St. Jean Cators in 1987-88, he was placed on the QMJHL first all-star team and named the Canadian Major Junior goaltender of the year. His stellar year was capped off at the NHL Entry Draft when he was selected 52nd overall by the Winnipeg Jets.

During his three years with Winnipeg, Beauregard was never able to challenge Bob Essensa for the first string job. He played 61 games over this time but also saw plenty of action with the Fort Wayne Komets of the IHL and the AHL's Moncton Hawks. Prior to the 1992-93 season, the young backstopper was acquired by the Philadelphia Flyers. He posted a disappointing 3-9-0 record for the Flyers and also battled injuries.

Beauregard was reacquired by the Jets in June 1993 but was chiefly used to add depth on the farm. He signed as a free agent with the IHL's San Francisco Spiders and went on to enjoy his best season as a pro in 1995-96. Beauregard led the IHL with 36 wins, was placed on the league's first all-star team, and won the James Gatschene Memorial Trophy as the most valuable player in the "I". He won 35 games for the Quebec Rafales the next season then joined the Chicago Wolves briefly in 1997-98. The next year he toiled for Switzerland's HC Davos then moved on to the Schwenningen Wild Wings of Germany in 1999-2000.
