Defenceman Nick Leddy out of Blackhawks lineup for Game 3 vs. Wild; 1st time since 2011

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Defenceman Nick Leddy has been left out of Chicago's lineup for the first time in more than three years.

Leddy was a surprise scratch for the Blackhawks in Game 3 on Tuesday in their Western Conference semifinal series against the Minnesota Wild. Sheldon Brookbank played in his place.

Since being brought up from the minors in January 2011, Leddy had played in every game for the Blackhawks, regular season and post-season. He has two assists in eight playoff games this season.

Leddy is a native of Eden Prairie, a suburb about 25 miles from Xcel Energy Center. The Wild made Leddy their first-round draft pick in 2009 but traded him to the Blackhawks less than a year later with defenceman Kim Johnsson for defenceman Cam Barker.

Quote of the Day

I'm sure [my father] was going crazy up there. I hope all of my friends were celebrating in the crowd. Coming back here and all of my friends and family are here, getting a goal in front of them is special.
