Leon Rochefort played his junior hockey for the Guelph Biltmores of the OHA from 1957 to 1959. As property of the New York Rangers, the right winger turned pro in their chain with the Trois-Rivieres Lions of the EPHL. The move marked the beginning of a lengthy career that was divided into two phases.

The first phase spanned the years leading up to the NHL's first major expansion in 1967. During that time, Rochefort performed primarily as a minor leaguer in the Rangers' and Canadiens' organizations. Each year he was called up from the American League to perform some spot duty as a roster substitute at the NHL level.

His best season came during the 1966-67 campaign while with the Habs when he picked up 16 points in 27 games. He also stuck around for the playoffs, making it all of the way to the finals before bowing out to the Leafs.

The second and more productive phase of Rochefort's career came with his selection by the Philadelphia Flyers in the expansion draft. His first full season with the club proved to be the best of his career when he garnered 42 regular-season points plus a couple of goals in the playoffs. But from then on, his play leveled off to that of an NHL journeyman.

After his second season with the Flyers, Rochefort found himself falling into a pattern of changing NHL clubs every one or two years. First he put in a season with the Kings, then another with the Canadiens. They in turn sent him to the Red Wings in 1970-71. A year and a half later, he was on the move to the Atlanta Flames who made use of his veteran services until 1974. It was at that time that the aging winger made his final NHL stop with the Vancouver Canucks. He was good for about a year and a half before he was demoted to the Tulsa Oilers of the CHL. He completed the 1975-76 campaign and then retired for good.
