Alain Côté (born April 14, 1967 in Montmagny, Quebec) is a former professional ice hockey player and Roller Hockey player.

Playing career[edit | edit source]

Côté was drafted in the second round (31st overall) by the Boston Bruins in the 1985 NHL Entry Draft. His first season in the National Hockey League (NHL) was 1985–86. He played a total of 36 games in his rookie year and had no goals and 6 assists. Those 32 games marked the most games that he would play in a single NHL season as he spent most of his career playing in the minors and elsewhere.

Côté played for five different NHL clubs during his career.

During that span, he played a total of 119 games in which he scored 2 goals and 18 assists for 20 points. He also racked up 124 penalty minutes. As well as the NHL, Côté has played in the QMJHL, AHL and IHL. He has also played hockey in Europe and Japan.
