Canadians sign '09 first-round pick Leblanc
Louis Leblanc, who the Montreal Canadiens selected with the 18th pick of the 2009 Entry Draft, has signed a three-year, entry-level deal with the team.

Last season, Leblanc played at Harvard University, where he led the team in a number of offensive categories, including goals (11), assists (12), points (23), and game-winning goals (3). Leblanc was named Ivy League Rookie of the Year and was a finalist for ECAC Rookie of the Year.

He's currently preparing for Hockey Canada's National Junior Evaluation Camp, which will be held Aug. 4-7 in St. John's, Nfld. That camp will go a long way in helping set Canada's roster for the 2011 World Junior Championship.
Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
