History

Leblanc was drafted by the Chicago Blackhawks in the seventh round of the 2006 NHL Draft.

2004-05: In the first of his two seasons spent playing for the Hamilton Red Wings of the OPJHL Leblanc impressed many with 36 points (14 goals, 22 assists) in 49 games. He was named the leagues rookie of the year and established himself as a very solid prospect.

2005-06: Leblanc started the 2005-06 season right where he left off tallying 16 points in his first 12 games. Unfortunately, Leblanc’s season was put on hold when he came down with a bad case of mono, forcing him to miss half the season. He ended up playing in only 22 games, recording 22 points (10 goals, 12 assists). He was also named to the CJAHL All-Star Game.

2006-07:

2007-08: Leblanc finished his sophomore season at the University of New Hampshire, a year in which he saw his production triple. More specifically, Leblanc registered 15 points in 37 games, compared to a meager five points in 39 games the prior season. He also picked up his physical intensity during the 2007-08 season, as his 37 penalty minutes ranked sixth on the team.  

Future
Leblanc will be returning to the University of New Hampshire for his senior season in 2009-10.
