A product of FC Nantes's famous youth academy, Ouédec made his Ligue 1 debuts at the age of 17. He finished joint-top scorer in the 1993–94 season, netting 20 goals to help his team qualify for the UEFA Cup as fifth; he added a further 18 the following season, and the Canaries won the seventh national championship of their history.
After two solid campaigns at Spain's RCD Espanyol, Ouédec moved to Paris Saint-Germain FC, and from there his career never improved: two-and-a-half seasons at Montpellier HSC (where he reformed, with little impact, Nantes' attacking trio which also comprised Patrice Loko and Reynald Pedros) and one with Belgian club R.A.A. Louviéroise with only nine goals combined. He retired from football after representing two sides in China, aged 32.
A France international on seven occasions, Ouédec was, however, never selected for any major tournament's final stages. He earned his first cap on 29 May 1994, coming on as a 71st-minute substitute for Éric Di Meco in a 4–1 win against Japan for the Kirin Cup.
After retiring, Ouédec worked as a youth system coordinator at Nantes, also buying a hotel in the city. He later settled in the Philippines with his wife, where he was involved in the meat packing industry business.
