Stéphan Lebeau - Montreal Canadiens 1989

Stéphan Armand Lebeau - Born February 28, 1968 in Saint-Jérôme, Quebec, is a former professional Ice Hockey centre.

Lebeau was a scoring sensation in junior with the Shawinigan Cataractes of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, and in 1987–88 he led the QMJHL in goals scored with 94. He finished his junior career second all-time in QMJHL career goals with 281, behind Mike Bossy, and second all-time in career points with 580, behind only Shawinigan-teammate Patrice Lefebvre.

Lebeau continued his scoring prowess in the American Hockey League after being signed by the Montreal Canadiens in 1986. He played one season in the AHL with the Sherbrooke Canadiens and led the league with 70 goals and 134 points as a rookie, which garnered him three major awards, including the Dudley "Red" Garrett Memorial Award as the league's top rookie. The next season he moved up to the NHL full-time, and scored 15 goals and 35 points in his rookie season. Over the next three seasons Lebeau's point total steadily improved, climaxing with 80 points in the 1992–93 season, the same year the Canadians came away with the Stanley Cup.

However the next season he failed to produce at the same clip, and midway through was traded to the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim for goalie Ron Tugnutt. He would play in Anaheim until 1994–95, and then he moved on to play in Europe / Switzerland for HC Lugano, HC La Chaux-de-Fonds and HC Ambri-Piotta before retiring in 2001.
