Stéphane Yelle (born May 9, 1974, Ottawa, Ontario) is a professional ice hockey centre with the Boston Bruins of the National Hockey League.

Playing career

Yelle was drafted in the 8th round (186th overall) in the 1992 NHL Entry Draft by the New Jersey Devils. On June 1, 1994, he was traded to the Quebec Nordiques, who became the Colorado Avalanche before he had a chance to play for them in Quebec. Known as an excellent faceoff taker and a gritty, hard-working player, Yelle played for the Avalanche from 1995 to 2002, winning two Stanley Cups, in 1996 and 2001. He's also known for his versatility, playing as a defenceman on the Calgary Flames when many defensemen were out injured. Yelle excelled as a shot blocker and checking specialist with the defensive minded Calgary Flames.

On September 3, 2008, the Boston Bruins signed Yelle to a one-year, free agent deal worth $750,000. [http://www.boston.com/sports/hockey/bruins/articles/2008/09/04/bruins_put_in_the_call_for_veteran_forward_yelle/]
