He wasn't even Hawks property, was he? I don't believe he had an NHL contract.

Never thought much of Leblanc and this year he is struggling in AHL

Nearly 25 yrs old so not much potential outside of maybe NHL/AHL tweener

Weird, wonder why he was signed to an NHL deal.
Makes me wonder if we were at 49 or 50 contracts, and a deal is coming.

I assume like Flick and others they though maybe he had some potential to develop into bottom 6 NHL talent

And I would say moving Leblanc was strictly to help open a spot up on Hogs roster to acqurie this guy

Wasnt going to be resigned. Gets a new start with Washington.

Blackhawks have several other RFA/UFAs in the minors. It will be interesting to see what happens to some of those players.

That's pretty much how I see it.

I think he showed a bit of promise as a shutdown center a few years ago, but he's obviously struggled since then.

Adding Beaudoin gives the Hogs a little veteran help on the wings, which might help them handle their midseason struggles.

What dman did they acquire? Isn't this Beaudoin guy on the wing?

Wasn't LeBlanc a small skill player?

Hawks are at 47 contracts, so probably just a shake up.

I think the Hogs wanted to make room and open some ice time for others or he just wanted to go

By becoming an AHL regular, Leblanc was actually one of Dale Tallon's more successful late round picks.
