Playing career[edit]

Leclerc was a 6'1", 205 lb. left winger from Winnipeg, Manitoba. Born on November 10th, 1976, he earned his chops at the junior level in the WHL, playing with the Victoria/Prince George Cougars and the Brandon Wheat Kings. He totaled 58 goals and 66 assists in 206 games through his first four seasons in the league. The Anaheim Mighty Ducks selected him in the third round of the 1995 NHL Entry Draft with the 55th overall pick. He would play one more season with the Wheat Kings, increasing his numbers to 58 goals and 53 assists with 161 penalty minutes in 71 games.

Leclerc's first three professional seasons were spent mostly in the AHL, between the Baltimore Bandits (71 games, 29 goals, 27 assists, 134 PiM) and the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks (113 games, 43 goals, 50 assists, 236 PiM). He also scored a goal and an assist in 19 games with Anaheim during that time. He joined the Ducks' NHL roster for good starting in 1999-00, and would play in 272 more games for the team over the next five seasons, with 53 markers and 77 helpers. This includes a 20 goal campaign in 2001-02.

After a trade to the Phoenix Coyotes prior to the 2005-06 season, Leclerc scored nine times with 12 assists in 35 games in the desert. On Groundhog's Day, 2006, Phoenix traded him with Brian Boucher to the Flames for Steve Reinprecht and Philippe Sauve. In 15 games, he scored once on 21 shots with four assists and an even rating. On March 2nd, he had two assists in a 3-1 win against the St. Louis Blues. He tallied his lone goal on March 16th, in a 3-2 loss to the Edmonton Oilers.
