Observations:

Nov 2015 – Leblanc had his contract mutually terminated with the Islanders as he headed overseas in October to join the KHL. He was signed to a two-way deal in free agency by the Islanders so it is not a massive loss, and they still own his rights. Pat Quinn

 

June 2014 – Leblanc was traded to the Anaheim Ducks for a conditional fifth-round pick. Not seeing any added opportunity for Leblanc on a deep Anaheim roster, other than perhaps a clean start.  Dobber

 

February 2014 – Leblanc currently sits second among Hamilton Bulldogs' scorers with 20 points in 38 games. He also recently had a five-game call-up to Montreal where he failed to register any points. Despite minimal ice time he had to bring more than just a bit of energy. With other forwards like Sven Andrighetto and Christian Thomas making progress this year it is not clear if Leblanc has a future with the Canadiens. Eric Daoust

October 2013 – Leblanc bounced back from a slow start and with additional injuries in Montreal he has earned a call-up to the main roster. Eric Daoust

 

October 2013 – Leblanc failed to make the Canadiens' roster out of training camp while fellow prospect Michael Bournival has cemented a spot with the main club. Leblanc has had a poor start in the AHL with no points in four contests for Hamilton. This paved the way for Patrick Holland to be called up to Montreal as an injury replacement. Leblanc has fallen down a few spots on the organizational depth chart and may not see NHL action for a while. Eric Daoust

 

July 2013 – Leblanc made some changes to his offseason training and put in a good performance at the team's prospect development camp. Eric Daoust

 

May 2013 – Leblanc finished a tough year with just 16 points in 62 games for the Hamilton Bulldogs in the AHL. For those who are looking for positives, he did lead his club with 161 shots on goal and was one of three recipients of a team award for hardest working player. The upside is still there but at the age of 22 he must get back on track quickly to get back into the team’s plans in Montreal. Eric Daoust

 

March 2013 – Leblanc’s development has taken a step backwards with just 13 points in 46 games in the AHL. Gabriel Dumont and Mike Blunden have recently been called up to Montreal while Michael Bournival and Patrick Holland have also outplayed Leblanc this season so it is possible that we do not see him back in the NHL for a while.
