Habs prep for big tilt against Pittsburgh

The Montreal Canadiens take on the Penguins tomorrow night, coming off a disappointing 5-3 loss to Toronto, and they'll have a little help. Nathan Beaulieu is back in the lineup, as is Louis Leblanc, freshly called up from the Hamilton Bulldogs. Michel Therrien has noted the Canadiens have to follow their gameplan better, which is Therrien-speak for not giving up the first goal...

Habs send Leblanc, St-Pierre back to Hamilton

Coming off a 3-2 shootout loss to the St. Louis Blues Tuesday night at the Bell Centre, the Canadiens were back on the ice Wednesday morning for practice in Brossard. The early news was that Louis Leblanc (photo above) and Martin St-Pierre have both been sent back to the AHL’s Hamilton Bulldogs.

Report: Murray, Leblanc to make season debuts for Habs tonight

Montreal defenseman Douglas Murray and forward Louis Leblanc will play their first games of the year tonight, according to various reports. Murray, 33, has missed all 11 games this season due to an upper-body injury suffered in the preseason.

Kamal Panesar: Habs Roundup: Louis Leblanc, Carey Price, Randy Cunneyworth and more

The Montreal Canadiens played, and lost to, the Tampa Bay Lightning last night. It was yet another game where Montreal let a third period lead slip away, a disturbing trend that is the prime suspect in the Canadiens woes this season. I remember when the Habs made the trade for Tomas Kaberle, that I was embroiled in an argument on Twitter about how the Canadiens were just not a...

Louis! Louis!

It was the World Junior tournament that made me think of Louis Leblanc following yesterday’s 6-2 win over the Ottawa Senators. A year ago Leblanc was the sole representative for the Canadiens organization on Team Canada. He acquitted himself nicely. He scored 7 points in 7 games and while he had to settle for Silver in Canada’s defeat by Russia, he cemented his name among the...

Erik Cole paid for Louis Leblanc’s parents to see his first NHL game

There probably weren't a lot of people in the Montreal Canadiens organization happy with Brendan Shanahan's decision to suspend Maxim Pacioretty for three games, but if you were looking for one, I'd suggest 2009 1st round draft pick Louis Leblanc. Down a forward, the Canadiens fired up the old claw crane and plucked Leblanc from their minor-league affiliate in Hamilton...

The Montreal Canadiens hit Anaheim this evening as the struggling Ducks look for a rare win. As everyone knows, rumours of change are swirling in Anaheim, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see a move if the Ducks drop this one to the Habs. That said, it’s also a big game for the Habs: Louis Leblanc makes his Canadiens debut. Leblanc, the Canadiens first round pick in 2009, slots...
