Blackhawks agree to 1-year contract with top college player LeBlanc

CHICAGO - The Chicago Blackhawks agreed to terms on a one-year contract with St. Cloud State's Drew LeBlanc on Friday, the same day the forward won the Hobey Baker Award given to the nation's top college hockey player.

LeBlanc had 13 goals and 37 assists in 42 games this season with St. Cloud State, helping lead the Huskies to their first Frozen Four appearance.

He is the first player from St. Cloud State to win the Hobey Baker.

LeBlanc, a fifth-year senior centre, was seventh in the nation with 50 points. He was a two-year captain for the Huskies, who lost 4-1 to Quinnipiac on Thursday in the national semifinals.

The native of Hermantown, Minn., was named first team all-conference in the WCHA this season.
