June 2023 – Belliveau spent the 2022-23 season in the QMJHL where he played 55 games and recorded 46 points. In previous seasons the talk about Belliveau’s tools always came with high praise from his skating to puck skills to the physical side of the game however this did not lead to the point production many would expect from a highly thought of prospect. This season that all changed with Belliveau playing on the top pair for the Gatineau Olympiques for much of the season. Belliveau should be heading to Wilkes-Barre Scranton next year to play with the Penguins AHL team. This will be a big test to see if Belliveau can carry over the tools he refined in juniors to the pro game. Tyler Ball

May 2022 – The Quebec-born defenseman showed a lot of improvement in his DY+2, but still failed to replicate the incredible offensive totals he posted in his DY-1. He was always going to be a project of a prospect due to his poor transition game and penchant for a gaffe. The Pens will likely be happy about the strides he took forward as an all-situations defenseman and leader this season. Still, another season of junior where he can dominate would boost his confidence and allow him to learn from his mistakes in a low-pressure environment. The Olympiques have a good young team with top prospects Zach Dean and Tristan Luneau, and Belliveau would be a candidate for captain. At 6-foot-2, 185 pounds, he possesses a pro frame and solid puck and distribution skills. If he can become an NHL defenseman, it should be viewed as a massive win for the Pens development team. Kyle Watson
