François Groleau (born January 23, 1973 in Longueuil, Quebec) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman currently playing for Thetford Mines Isothermic in the Ligue Nord-Américaine de Hockey.

Playing careerEdit

Groleau was drafted 41st overall by the Calgary Flames in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft. He spent two seasons in the American Hockey League with the Saint John Flames before he was traded to the Quebec Nordiques in March 1995 for Ed Ward. He finished the 1994–95 season in the AHL with the Cornwall Aces.

He signed with the Montreal Canadiens in July 1995 and played eight NHL games for the team over three seasons, scoring one assist. He spent most of his tenure in the AHL with the Fredericton Canadiens and also spent a season in the International Hockey League with the San Francisco Spiders.

With his NHL career now at an end, Groleau moved to Germany in 1998, playing one season in the Deutsche Eishockey Liga for the Augsburger Panther. He then returned to the AHL with the Quebec Citadelles again for one season. In 2000, Groleau returned to the DEL, signing for Adler Mannheim. He spent five seasons with the team, winning the league title in 2001 and the German Cup in 2003. He signed for EV Duisburg Die Füchse in 2005, but the team finished bottom of the league. He signed for EHC Black Wings Linz in 2006. After his second season with the Black Wings, Groleau spent two years in France with Diables Rouges de Briançon before returning to Canada to play with Thetford Mines Isothermic in 2010–11.
