Ducks sign F Leblanc

Restricted free agent forward Louis Leblanc signed a one-year contract with the Anaheim Ducks, the team announced Friday.

Financial terms were not released.

Leblanc, 23, was acquired by the Ducks from the Montreal Canadiens on June 14 in exchange for a conditional fifth-round draft pick in 2015.

The 6-foot, 178-pound center had seven shots on goal and plus-1 rating in eight games with the Canadiens last season. He also had 13 goals and 28 points in 70 games with the Canadiens' American Hockey League affiliate, Hamilton.

Selected by the Canadiens with the 18th pick of the 2009 draft, Leblanc has five goals and 10 points in 58 NHL games.
