Blackhawks agree to 1-year contract with top college player LeBlanc

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.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
