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

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
