He was one of the top scorers on the team, especially from the 1929-30 season to the 1934-35 season. He scored a career high 24 goals in 29-30, and scored at least 16 goals in four different years.

He won two Stanley Cups with the Canadiens, in 1930 and 31.

On Dec. 29, 1929, Lepine was the first NHL player in almost five years to score five goals in a game.

He also coached the Habs in 1939-40, but his record was brutal (10-33-5), and is better left forgotten.
