Louis Leblanc called up to the Canadiens

Jeff Gross

After a trying season in Hamilton, can Louis Leblanc make the most of his hot streak and reaffirm his place as a top prospect in the Habs' organization?

Update: it's official.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

According to Renaud Lavoie, Louis Leblanc is not taking warm-ups with the Bulldogs this afternoon and has not been traded. Therefore, it seems he has been called up to the Canadiens.

Leblanc was the Habs' first round pick, 18th overall, at the 2009 draft in Montreal. In his last stint with the club, in 2011-2012, he put up 10 points in 42 games, and so far this season has 6 points in 7 games with the Hamilton Bulldogs, including a couple of recent overtime winners.

After being challenged by Bergevin to be the best player on the ice every game he plays, he has responded. With the injury to Travis Moen, it is possible that the Quebec native suits up as early as Monday night against (now healthy) Henrik Lundqvist and the New York RangersLeblanc was ranked 9th in our annual top-25 under-25 rankings here at EOTP.
