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 means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.

— Panthers vice president of hockey operations Travis Viola after Florida won the No. 1 pick in the NHL Draft Lottery
