After stints in the ECHL with the Cincinnati Cyclones and Reading Royals respectively, Champagne left North America as a free agent and signed a one-year contract with Scottish club Braehead Clan of the Elite Ice Hockey League (EIHL) on July 29, 2013.[4] He made 58 appearances for the Clan, amassing 27 goals and 45 assists.

Prior to the 2014-15 season, Champagne was picked up by Hockey Club Amiens Somme of French top-flight Ligue Magnus. In June 2015, he had his contract renewed for the 2015-16 campaign.[5]
