News and Notes

NHL First Round Pick Leblanc Harvard Bound.

Forbort headed for bigger and better things.

Hope skates on.

UMASS hockey team staying close to home this season.

A little old, but I found this a little interesting. It's a grade for each Canadian NHL team following the NHL Entry Draft.

Breakdown: The host city was buzzing with rumours that the Canadiens would swing a trade for Tampa Bay’s Vincent Lecavalier. Instead, the team took another local boy in Leblanc — despite scouts ranking him much lower. The Point-Claire, Que., forward has committed to Harvard for at least the next two years, which might not be a smartest move for his development.
Seidel Says: “The concern began at 18 when they caved to public pressure and selected the hometown francophone Louis Leblanc, who played this past season in the weak United States Hockey League. The Harvard-bound Leblanc is an offensive player but needs a lot of work and time before he is ever expected to compete for a spot on the Habs."

Lee's untraditional chase of NHL dream.
