Netminder Jean-Louis Levasseur started one game for the Minnesota North Stars in 1979-80. Most of his pro career was spent in the WHA and the minors.
Born in Noranda, Quebec, Levasseur first drew attention to himself by starring on the senior Orillia Terriers. The WHA's Minnesota Fighting Saints signed him as a free agent in 1974 then spent two years with the Johnstown Jets of the North American League. As a rookie pro in 1974-75 he recorded a 3.15 goals against average in 28 games then helped the Jets win the NAHL championship. Late in the 1975-76 the Fighting Saints used him in a few games before sharing the goaltending duties with Mike Curran the next season. He later competed for the Edmonton Oilers, New England Whalers and Quebec Nordiques before the league disbanded.
In October, 1979, Levasseur signed with the North Stars as a free agent. He won 19 games for the CHL's Oklahoma City Stars but yielded seven goals in his only NHL appearance. He retired in 1981 after playing 21 games for Oklahoma City.
