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

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
