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.
It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
