Two-way center scores his share of goals and averages more than a point per game in the QMJHL. A good teammate. He could be faster. Potentially a heart-and-soul bottom-sixer.

March 2022 – After a 12-game AHL baptism, Bibeau has split his sophomore pro campaign between Bridgeport and the Worcester Railers. So far, he’s tallied a goal and five assists in 25 games with the AHL Islanders as well as three goals and five helpers in 11 ECHL games. Time will tell where the sixth-round pick’s true level is.

August 2021 – Bibeau signed a one-year extension with the Bridgeport Islanders. Terms were not released. The 22-year-old had a goal and three assists in 12 games last season as an AHL rookie. Mark Allan
April 2021 – Proving his reputation as a defensive player, Bibeau has just one assist in eight outings as a pro rookie with the Sound Tigers. Mark Allan
June 2020 – Bibeau signed a three-year contract with the Islanders after completing his fourth and final QMJHL campaign. Coming off a 29-goal, 41-assist, 63-game schedule split between the Quebec Remparts (as captain) and the Chicoutimi Saguenéens, the former sixth-round pick must prove himself in the minors before getting a shot as a bottom-six Islander.

March 2020 – On his third QMJHL squad in four seasons, Bibeau hopes to be part of a second straight Memorial Cup champion. As an assistant captain with Rouyn-Noranda, he helped his team into the playoffs with 28 goals and 69 points in 63 regular-season outings. He upped his game in the post-season with 14 goals and 15 assists in 20 appearances as part of a championship roster. The Huskies dealt him to the Quebec Remparts, who named Bibeau captain to lead their young roster. After responding with 17 goals and 35 points in 31 games for a struggling team, he was traded to powerful Chicoutimi, registering 12 scores and 33 points in 30 outings so far for the Memorial-minded Saguenéens. Drafted in the sixth round by the Islanders, Bibeau remains without a pro contract, which should change if he keeps racking up points and winning titles. He’s on pace to better his QMJHL season-high for points. Statistically minded, Bibeau studies numbers to help improve his play. To truly do that, though, he knows he has to become a faster skater. He prides himself on his defensive play, which makes his offensive production more impressive. Mark Allan
