Playing career[edit]

Juniors and early life[edit]

Labrie left hockey at the age of 17 when he was cut from the Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.[3] He worked the night shift at a convenience store and worked at a restaurant as a chef's assistant. Labrie found it within himself to restart his hockey career completely, first playing in a weekend rec league, then Junior A, Juniors, the AHL, and finally making it to the NHL.[4]

Professional[edit]

Labrie as a member of the Tampa Bay Lightning.

On January 7, 2012, Labrie made his NHL debut playing with the Tampa Bay Lightning in a 3–1 defeat on the road against the Montreal Canadiens.[5] He later recorded his first NHL point, an assist, in a victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on January 21, 2012.[6]

On July 1, 2014, Labrie signed a one-year contract as a free agent with the Chicago Blackhawks.[7] They assigned him to their AHL-affiliate, the Rockford IceHogs on September 30, 2014. In the 2014-15 season, Labrie added a veteran presence in producing 16 points in 60 games. On June 18, 2015, Labrie was re-signed to a one-year AHL contract to remain with the IceHogs.[8]

In the following off-season, Labrie opted to remain within the Blackhawks organization, agreeing to another one-year, two-way NHL contract on July 1, 2016.[9]

Personal life[edit]

While on a fishing trip with fellow Tampa Bay Lightning teammates Keith Aulie and Anders Lindback, Labrie managed to catch a pelican. An animal lover, Labrie was able to unhook the bird, and let it go unharmed.[10]

He is now dating Patrick Roy's daughter, Jana Roy.
