Guy Rouleau (April 16, 1965 – December 7, 2008) was a Canadian ice hockey player. He won the Michel Brière Memorial Trophy as the most valuable player in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League for his play with the Hull Olympiques during the 1985–86 QMJHL season.[1] Despite his junior league success, Rouleau was not drafted in the NHL Entry Draft and never played in the National Hockey League. He played three seasons in the American league with the Sherbrooke Canadiens (1986–88) and the Springfield Falcons (1989–90). He also played for various minor league teams until 1998. Rouleau also played for the Montreal Roadrunners (1994–97) and Ottawa Loggers (only two games) in the now defunct inline hockey league Roller Hockey International. At the 1986 Memorial Cup, Rouleau tied Jeff Larmer's record for points in a Memorial Cup with 16.[2]

Rouleau died from complications related to a brain tumor on December 7, 2008.[3]
