MONTREAL - The Montreal Canadiens have signed forward Louis Leblanc, their first round draft choice in 2009, to a three-year contract.

Leblanc was the 18th overall choice in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

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

He has twice represented 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.
