Habs' Leblanc Gets Fourth-Line Duty

News: Louis Leblanc, who was called up from Hamilton of the American Hockey League on Monday, suited up and played 7:49 in Wednesday night's loss to Pittsburgh. He had one blocked shot and one hit while seeing mostly fourth-line duty.
Analysis: Injuries have left the Canadiens thin at forward, so we suspect Louis Leblanc will stick around for the short term, until Alex Galchenyuk or Ryan White return.

Analysis: Louis Leblanc was in the middle of a hot streak for AHL Hamilton, as he had scored four goals in his last three games. He will look to provide an offensive spark for the Canadiens, as it appears any issues he may have had with the organization are behind both parties.

Canadiens' Leblanc On Scoring Tear In AHL

News: Louis Leblanc has scored four goals in three games, including overtime winners in consecutive contests, for Hamilton of the American Hockey League. The scoring surge leaves Leblanc atop the Bulldogs' scoring sheet with six points (four goals, two assists) in seven games.
Analysis: The former first-round pick (2009) has watched Michael Bournival pass him as the organization's top upper-level forward prospect. And he remained in Hamilton when the Habs plucked Patrick Holland and Michael Blunden this past week for temporary fill-in duty. Louis Leblanc needs to put a disappointing 2012-13 season behind him and change any negative impressions he may have left within the organization.

Habs' Coach Defends Leblanc Demotion

News: Montreal head coach Michel Therrien defended the organization's decision to demote Louis Leblanc to Hamilton of the American Hockey League in the first round of cuts, the Montreal Gazette reports. "Louis came with a different attitude, better shape â€" we all saw that â€" but based on what we saw in camp and the season he had last year, we had to take a decision," Therrien said. "We believe that was the best time for Louis to go to Hamilton."
Analysis: Therrien also said the coaches know Louis Leblanc and that they wanted to get a better read on some other lesser-known forwards. Reading between the lines, it appears the organization is still a little miffed at Leblanc, who became unhappy with his role on a checking line at Hamilton last season. The 2009 first-round draft pick had a sub-par 2012-13 season (10 goals, eight assists in 62 games), though it should be noted a high-ankle sprain factored into that.

Candiens Demote Leblanc

News: The Canadiens sent Louis Leblanc down to Hamilton of the American Hockey League, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: The former first-round draft pick was part of the first round of cuts, a somewhat surprising move. Louis Leblanc, who took a developmental step back in 2012-13, is dealing with the first taste of adversity in his career.

Canadiens' Leblanc Seeing Psychologist

News: Louis Leblanc has been working with a sports psychologist, the Hockey Inside Out blog reports.
Analysis: Louis Leblanc, Montreal's first-round draft pick in 2009, appeared headed for a spot on the Habs' roster last season but a high-ankle sprain he suffered while skating with AHL Hamilton put a hold on those plans and stifled any development.

Canadiens' Leblanc Over Injury

News: Louis Leblanc, who suffered a high-ankle sprain and took a step back in his development last season, is looking for a fresh start this summer as the Canadiens kicked off their annual development camp Wednesday, the Hockey Inside Out blog reports.
Analysis: Louis Leblanc suffered the injury early in the AHL season and it apparently lingered. The Canadiens still value him and are looking for the former first-round draft pick (2009) to make a fresh start. "I'm not worried about Louis bouncing back," Montreal director of player development Martin Lapointe said. "He's a good kid that works hard."

Canadiens' Lelbanc In Team's Future Plans

News: Montreal general manager Marc Bergevin acknowledged Louis Leblanc took a step back in his development in 2012-13, but the 2009 first-round pick is still in the team's plans, the Montreal Gazette reports. "He knows he has to be better and he knows it's a big summer for him," Bergevin said. "It's going to be up to him. But he's a good young player that we hope one day will play here."
Analysis: Louis Leblanc finished with just 10 goals and eight assists while posting a minus-18 in 62 games for AHL Hamilton this past season. He had showed some promise when called up during Montreal's abysmal 2011-12 season, but slumped badly and wasn't even given a shot to make the big club when the lockout-shortened season kicked off in January.

Canadiens' Leblanc A Third-Liner In AHL

News: Louis Leblanc, who played more games in the NHL than in the AHL last season, is stuck on the third line for AHL Hamilton, the Montreal Gazette reports. The 2009 first-round draft pick was not invited to training camp after a delayed recovery from a high-ankle sprain earlier this season.
Analysis: It looks like the organization is grooming Louis Leblanc for a third-line role, which means be good in the defensive zone and let the offensive production come to him. Leblanc played well in Montreal last year and showed flashes of offense while displaying more grit than expected. It appears prospects like Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher have moved ahead of him, in terms of offensive upside.

Canadiens' Leblanc Stalled By Injury

News: Louis Leblanc's high ankle sprain suffered earlier in the season has hampered his progress, the Hockey Inside Out blog reports. The 2009 first-round draft pick played more games in Montreal than in the AHL last season, but did not get an invite to training camp.
Analysis: Montreal general manager Marc Bergevin said Louis Leblanc is not where he needs to be because of the injury.

Canadiens' Leblac Not Invited To Camp

News: Louis Leblanc did not get an invitation to Montreal's training camp, the Montreal Gazette reports.

Canadines' Leblanc Expected In Camp

News: Louis Leblanc is expected to get a training camp invitation, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: Louis Leblanc made a good impression in his first season with Montreal in 2011-12, scoring 10 points and finishing with 68 hits in 42 games as a 20-year-old rookie. There's a chance for him to land a regular wing gig on the third line.

News: Louis Leblanc (sprained ankle) is expected to begin skating by the end of the week, RDS.ca reports.
Analysis: After suffering a high ankle sprain in late October, Louis Leblanc was given a recovery window of four-to-six weeks, but it looks like he'll be able to return to AHL play perhaps before then.

Habs' Prospect Leblanc Hurt In AHL Game

News: Louis Leblanc had to be helped off the ice in the second period of Saturday's AHL game against the Marlies after falling awkwardly, reports Sportsnet.ca.
Analysis: He fell after one of many scrums that broke out during the game. "It's never fun to see a guy get hurt like that," said Bulldogs' forward Gabriel Dumont. "His leg twisted pretty weird. It didn't look good so it's tough. He's a good player and a big loss for our team." No word yet from the team on the severity of the injury.
