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

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
