The Montreal Canadiens have signed forward Louis Leblanc, the team's first round draft choice in 2009, to a three-year contract.

Leblanc was the 18th overall pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.  He is eligible to be sent to AHL, but he has signed with the Montreal Juniors of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. The current plan is to have him play in the QMJHL, but it depends on what happens in Canadiens camp.

The 6-foot-1, 184-pound forward led Harvard in goals (11), assists (12), and points (23) as a freshman during the 2009-10 seasons.  Leblanc was named Ivy League Rookie of the Year.

He has twice played for Canada in international tournaments and was invited to the National Junior Team camp in preparation for the World Junior Hockey Championships to be played in Buffalo in December.
