Joey Leach, D
Hometown: Wadena, SK, Canada
Drafted: 2010 by Calgary, 73rd overall
June 2012 – Leach was not signed to an Entry-Level Contract and will now be eligible for the 2012 NHL Draft. (Zenon Herasymiuk)
January 2012 – Leach is a big, strong, defenseman that has thrived in his increased role this year with the Kootenay Ice. Through the month of January he has totaled 8 goals and 22 assists for 30 points, which matches his output from last season. He is also a +23, and is among the Kootenay Ice’s all-time leaders in that category. Look for his ice-time to increase for the defending champs, who are pretty thin on the blue line.
Leach is producing while playing big minutes in junior, but don’t expect his scoring totals to translate very well at the NHL level. Expect him to land a roster spot on the Abbotsford Heat (AHL) next year.
