Pete Bellefeuille

This photo is of Pete (Pierre) "The Fleeting Frenchman" Bellefeuille. He played 92 NHL games in the late 1920s with Detroit and Toronto, scoring 25 goals and 4 assists.

The right winger from Trois Rivieres, Quebec was more or less utilized as a substitute back then. In those days the best players played most of the game, and were spotted by bench players here and there for short breaks. Bellefeuille spent a lot of time sitting on the bench.

When given a chance to play at the minor league level Bellefeuille was a regular scorer. He also played the game with an edge, if his penalty minutes are to be a clue into his temperament.
