CHICAGO - The Chicago Blackhawks agreed to terms with St. Cloud State's Drew LeBlanc on a one-year contract just hours after the forward won the Hobey Baker Award given to the nation's top college hockey player.
The Blackhawks announced the move on Friday.
LeBlanc had 13 goals and 37 assists in 42 games this season with St. Cloud State, helping lead the Huskies to their first Frozen Four appearance.
It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
