He established a career-high in goals, assists, points, and plus-minus rating. Noreau posted a career-best, four-game point streak, on two occasions -- November 9 at Rouyn-Noranda to November 14 vs. Shawinigan (two goals, five assists over the span) and January 11 vs. Rouyn-Noranda to January 20 vs. Shawinigan (four assists over the span). Noreau also skated in 15 playoff games, tallying two goals, one assist and 12 penalty minutes. He notched his first career postseason goal on April 8 at Victoriaville.

He made his QMJHL debut on November 8 vs. Victoriaville and registered his first career point with an assist on January 29 at Shawinigan.

The Montreal, Quebec native was selected by the Rangers in the fifth round, 136th overall, in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
