Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Patrick Coulombe
Patrick Coulombe was born April 23, 1985 in St. Fabien Quebec. Undrafted, Coulombe spent five years of junior with the Rimouski Oceanic and Chicoutimi Sagueneens prior to making his pro debut.

An offensively gifted defenceman, Coulombe joined Rimouski in 2001 and became a key component of the club's blueline in his sophomore year. Having been passed over in the 2003 NHL Draft, Coulombe re-joined the Oceanic the ensuing season. Competing alongside junior phenom Sidney Crosby on a stacked Rimouski Oceanic roster, he became one of the highest scoring defenders in the league. Rimouski would easily win the QMJHL Championship that year, however lose out in the final game of the Memorial Cup to the London Knights. The following season Coulombe was dealt to Chicoutimi where he would go on to set career high in goals (23) and points (77).

After his final year of junior hockey, he signed a pro contract with the Manitoba Moose of the AHL. He would spend the majority of his time with the Moose that season, however make his a appearance in the NHL with the Canucks on October 31, 2006.
