Since turning pro in 1997-98, right-winger Jonathan Delisle has been a solid grinder in the Montreal Canadiens' farm system. He was recalled to the Habs for one game in 1998-99 but was strictly a regular in the AHL.
Born in Ste-Anne-des-Plaines, Quebec, Delisle starred in the QAAA with the Ste-Foy Governors. He then played in the QMJHL with Verdun College Francais and the Hull Olympiques. Montreal chose the feisty forward 86th overall in 1995 the returned him to junior where hit registered consecutive 30-goal seasons. As a pro, Delisle provided muscle and periodic offense on the AHL's Fredericton Canadiens and Quebec Citadelles while hoping to gain another opportunity to compete in the NHL.
