Question about Leblanc

Just to clarify, because he wasn't playing junior when he was drafted, the age requirement for the AHL doesn't apply to him, right? So, if by chance he burned up camp and was considered too good for junior, he'd be allowed to play for the Bulldogs, even though he's still 19?

What do you mean by burning up camp? Which camp?

Do you mean he comes to the Habs camp, performs better than most players at practices then physically make other NHL players look like school girls in the preseason games? If that's the case, I think he starts in Montreal, the Bell Centre to be more accurate. Thank you very much.

p.s. he won't be burning the camp as a centre, don't worry.

The OP was refering to the special CHL rule that stipulates a player drafted out of the CHL cannot play in the AHL until a certain age (can't remember, 20 at the beginning of the season IIRC.). But since Leblanc wasn't drafted out of the CHL, this rule doesn't apply and he can play wherever he please.

Lets say Leblanc dominates at the rookie camp, has an invitation at the main camp, and shows is really belong in the pro (not saying it will happen, but it's a possibility). The habs could in theory offer him to play in the AHL as soon as this very year.

Except that all players under NHL or AHL contract with the organization are going at the main camp.

correct but I don't see that happening, Gauthier said that he will play Harvard or Junior...thats it. I like the kid but I think he's not ready to play pro ( hamilton or Montreal ). Let him play with the Junior, let see what he can do
