Restricted free agent forward Louis Leblanc signed a one-year contract with the Anaheim Ducks on Friday. Financial terms were not released.

Leblanc, 23, was acquired by the Ducks from the Montreal Canadiens on June 14 in exchange for a conditional fifth-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft.

The 6-foot, 178-pound center had seven shots on goal and plus-1 rating in eight games with the Canadiens last season. He had 13 goals and 28 points in 70 games with the Canadiens' American Hockey League affiliate, the Hamilton Bulldogs.

Selected by the Canadiens with the 18th pick of the 2009 draft, Leblanc has five goals and 10 points in 58 NHL games.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
