Right winger Len Fontaine dressed for 46 games with the Detroit Red Wings in the early 1970s. He was a natural goal scorer whose 5-foot-7 frame was better suited to the minor leagues.

Born in Quebec City, Quebec, Fontaine played Junior B with the Sarnia Sailors. In 1968-69 he crossed the St. Clair River to compete for the Port Huron Flags of the IHL. This was his first of 13 rewarding seasons in the "I". Fontaine was a reliable scorer for the Flags and was voted on to the league's second all-star team in 1971 after helping the team capture the Turner Cup. The next season he broke out for 41 goals and helped the renamed Wings repeat as league titleists. Following that season he was presented the James Gatschene Memorial trophy, as the league's most valuable player and earned selection to the IHL first all-star team. His dream season was capped off by being signed as a free agent by the Detroit Red Wings in May.

Fontaine scored 18 points in 39 games for Detroit but the team had Mickey Redmond, Bill Collins, and Tim Ecclestone at right-wing. He played seven games in 1973-74 then scored 63 points in 59 games for the AHL's Virginia Wings. Fontaine played briefly with the Michigan Stags of the WHA in 1974-75 then returned to the Flags for the last 20 games of the IHL season. Fontaine enjoyed his finest year as a pro with Port Huron in 1975-76 when he led the IHL in scoring and was named the league MVP and a first-team all-star for the second time.

In 1976-77, the veteran forward began a five-year association with the Toledo Goaldiggers. He helped the club win the Turner Cup in 1978 and was a consistent point producer. Fontaine enjoyed two fine years with the Flint Generals before retiring in 1983 as one of the top scorers in the history of the IHL.
