Jean-Philippe Lamoureux (born August 10, 1984) is an American professional ice hockey goaltender. He was not drafted in the NHL Draft and is currently playing for the Vienna Capitals of the Austrian Hockey League (EBEL).
He then played four years of college hockey at the University of North Dakota (2004–08), including a senior season that saw him earn a Hobey Baker Award nomination while leading the Fighting Sioux to the NCAA Frozen Four. Lamoureux is second all-time in school history with a 2.14 GAA, .920 save percentage and ten shutouts.
Lamoureux spent one season for the Alaska Aces in the ECHL, a mid-level professional ice hockey league, where he was named the league’s goaltender of the year. He also set an ECHL record with eight shutouts. That year, the Aces advanced to the Kelly Cup Championship where they were later defeated in 7 games by the South Carolina Stingrays.
On July 30, 2009, Lamoureux was signed by the Buffalo Sabres to a one-year contract for the 2009–10 season. He was assigned to the Sabres AHL affiliate, the Portland Pirates, for the duration of the season and in 31 games posted 14 wins. Immediately preceding the Pirates' elimination from the Calder Cup playoffs, Lamoureux was recalled to the Sabres reserve squad for the Stanley Cup playoffs that year. He was not re-signed by the Sabres organization and went on to sign with the Calgary Flames AHL affiliate, the Abbotsford Heat, on July 22, 2010.
The Lamoureux family has six siblings who all play ice hockey at an elite level. Jean-Philippe, born 1984, is the oldest child in the family. His younger brother, Jacques, born 1986, previously played professional hockey in the ECHL with the Alaska Aces. His next brother, Pierre-Paul, born 1987, played three years of defence in the Western Hockey League with the Red Deer Rebels. The next brother, Mario, born 1988, was an NCAA forward and captain at the University of North Dakota and then played professionally in the ECHL, AHL and in Europe. His sisters Jocelyne and Monique, both born 1989 (twins), both won silver medals with Team USA at the 2010 Winter Olympics, and are currently both forwards with the women's NCAA team at the University of North Dakota.
