Guillaume Desbiens (born April 20, 1985 in Alma, Quebec) is a Canadian professional ice hockey right winger currently with the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League (AHL) within the Vancouver Canucks organization.


Playing careerEdit

Desbiens played major junior in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) with the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies for four seasons, being drafted 116th overall in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft by the Atlanta Thrashers after his second year with the Huskies. He turned pro in 2005–06, splitting the season between the Chicago Wolves of the AHL and the Gwinnett Gladiators of the ECHL. Despite having signed an NHL contract with the Thrashers, Desbiens did not suit up in any pre-season or regular season games with Atlanta.[1] He played in the Thrashers' farm system between the Wolves and Gladiators until the end of the 2007–08 season, when he was released by his NHL team.[1]

Desbiens joined the Manitoba Moose of the AHL as a walk-on in 2008–09.[1] Following his first season with the Moose, he was signed by their NHL affiliate, the Vancouver Canucks on July 22, 2009.[2] Assigned to the Moose to start the 2009–10 season, he was recalled by the Canucks after an injury to Daniel Sedin[3] and made his NHL debut with the Canucks on October 11, 2009. He played nine-and-a-half minutes on the third line with Kyle Wellwood and Tanner Glass in a 4–3 win against the Dallas Stars.[1] After his one-game stint, he was sent back down to the Moose in favour of Michael Grabner.[4]
