Career Years:






After a hard-fought competition in training camp, Labbé started the first six games at middle linebacker, giving way to Henoc Muamba who took over midway through the season.  He dressed for all 18 games and recorded a career-high 34 defensive tackles and also added his first ever quarterback sack on Nov 3/12 against the Montreal Alouettes.  Labbé continued his outstanding play on special teams, finishing second on the team with 13 special teams tackles.  He now sits in fourth place on the team’s all-time special teams tackles list with 76.


After spending his first three years in the CFL primarily as a special teams player, Labbé saw significant playing time on defence in his fourth season with the Blue Bombers.  Often inserted in second and long situations, Labbé recorded a career-high five defensive tackles during the Banjo Bowl after Joe Lobendahn suffered a season-ending injury.  He finished the season with 18 defensive tackles, one tackle for loss and 11 special teams tackles.  Labbé made his first professional start at middle linebacker in the East Final and recorded two defensive tackles during that game, and added another five defensive tackles in his second start, the 99th Grey Cup.


Pierre-Luc has developed into one of the best special teams players in the league. He finished tied for third in the CFL with 21 special teams tackles.


Labbe played in 16 games, while missing week five and six due to injury. In those 16 games he had two defensive tackles and 18 special teams tackles.


Labbe dressed for 16 regular season games and the East semi-final. He had 13 special teams tackles which made him fourth on the team.


Labbe was the leading tackler in the Quebec Conference in 2007 with 54.5 total tackles. In addition, he made two sacks and two pass break-ups. Labbe was a QUFL all-star from 2005-2007 and was the conference’s defensive player of the year in 2005.


Labbe was drafted in the sixth round (47th overall) of the 2008 CFL Canadian Draft to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
