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.
I'll be happy, believe me, if we win our last playoff game. Not taking anything away, but we've had a fairly good lead for a while now. It would be more surprising if we didn't get the division. Business as usual.
