Highly touted Montreal Canadiens‘ 1st round 2009 draft pick (#18 overall), 21-year old center Louis Leblanc(20) started the season with their AHL affiliate Hamilton Bulldogs but was called up in November and then returned in early January only to be recalled again earlier this month.
He’s made the most of his NHL playing time, scoring 3 goals and 4 assists in 18 games.
In 25 games with the Bulldogs he has 9 goals and 8 assists.
Listed at 6′ 178 lbs. he doesn’t look all that big out there in whatever league he’s playing in. He is considered a sniper though and should become a valuable scoring asset once he grows into his pro game.
