Marc LaBelle (born December 20, 1969) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey winger. LaBelle went undrafted and signed with the Montreal Canadiens in 1991 as a free agent, but played in the minors. He then signed with the Ottawa Senators the next year, again as a free agent, but much like his spell in Montreal, he spent all of his time in the minor leagues. LaBelle was then claimed by the Florida Panthers in the 1993 NHL Expansion Draft, spending three seasons in the International Hockey League with the Cincinnati Cyclones and the Milwaukee Admirals, but never played for the Panthers. He signed with the Dallas Stars in 1996, where he finally played in the National Hockey League. He played nine regular season games during the 1996–97 NHL season, scoring no points and collecting 46 penalty minutes. He never saw NHL action again and continued to play in the IHL with second spells with the Admirals and the Cyclones as well as a spell at the Michigan K-Wings. He also played one game in the Quebec Semi-Pro Hockey League for the Lachute Rapids. He eventually settled in the Western Professional Hockey League, playing for the El Paso Buzzards as a player/associate coach, where he spent two seasons, but suffered a hand injury during a game against the New Mexico Scorpions which eventually led to his retirement. He briefly came out of retirement during the 2006–07 ECHL season playing one more game for the Cincinnati Cyclones.
