Brett Bellemore was born on June 25, 1988, in Windsor, Ontario. A product of the Plymouth Whalers or the Ontario Hockey League, he was select in the sixth round of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft by the Carolina Hurricanes.

Bellemore would make his professional debut in the American Hockey League during the late stages of the 2007-08 season for the Hurricanes' affiliate, the Albany River Rats. He would appear in four regular season games for the club as well as five post season games as he got his feet wet in professional hockey. He would return to Plymouth the following season and would once again re-join the River Rats upon the conclusion of his OHL campaign.

The 2009-10 season would be the first full professional season for Bellemore. He would appear in 75 games for Albany, scoring once and adding 81 minutes in penalties, while emerging as a physical presence.

Bellemore moved with the River Rats as the franchise relocated and changed its name to the Charlotte Checkers. He would spend the majority of the next three seasons with Charlotte, getting his first taste of NHL action during the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season. He would appear in eight games for the Hurricanes, recording a pair of assists.
