Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jean-Yves Leroux
Left-winger Jean-Yves Leroux finished his fifth season in the Chicago Black Hawks organization in 2000-01. He was a rugged scorer in junior who was a solid defensive grinder in the pros.

The Montreal native starred in the QAAA with Montreal Bourassa in 1991-92 before joining the QMJHL's Beauport Harfangs the next season. He accumulated 94 goals in four seasons for the club and was chosen 40th overall by the Hawks in 1994 after he made the league's second all-star team. During the 1996-97 season, Leroux recorded an assist in one NHL game and notched 14 goals for the Indianapolis Ice of the IHL.

Over the next four seasons, the rugged forward worked up and down his wing for Chicago. He averaged eleven minutes per game over this span and was used mostly on the fourth line and occasionally found himself in the press box.
