LeClair went from not making his high school team as a freshman to a three-time 50-goal scorer and Stanley Cup champion in the NHL.
The forward from St. Albans, Vermont, didn't make the team in his first year at Bellows Free Academy. But the Montreal Canadiens selected him in the second round (No. 33) of the 1987 NHL Draft after he scored 44 goals in 23 games in his senior season. Instead of turning pro, LeClair opted to attend the University of Vermont, where he struggled with injuries and inconsistency before scoring 25 goals as a senior.
