Canadiens trade forward Leblanc to Ducks for pick
The Montreal Canadiens traded forward Louis Leblanc to the Anaheim Ducks for a conditional fifth-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft.

The Montreal Canadiens have traded forward Louis Leblanc to the Anaheim Ducks for a conditional fifth-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft.

Leblanc was selected by the Canadiens in the first round (No. 18) of the 2009 draft. In 50 games with Montreal, the right-shooting Quebec native has five goals and five assists. He spent much of this season with the Canadiens' American Hockey League affiliate in Hamilton, where he scored 10 goals and 18 points in 62 games.

"After three seasons with the Canadiens organization, we felt that moving forward the best option for Louis and our organization was to give him the opportunity to pursue his career with another team," Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin said. "Throughout his entire stay with our organization, Louis showed great professionalism and a constant desire to improve. We thank him for his contribution and wish him success for the continuation of his career."

Quote of the Day

It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
