Peter Leblanc (born February 3, 1988) is a Canadian professional ice hockey forward who is currently playing for the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL. He has formerly played a solitary game in the National Hockey League (NHL) with the Washington Capitals.

Playing career[edit]

Selected by the Chicago Blackhawks 186th overall in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, Leblanc was assigned to AHL affiliate, the Rockford IceHogs.[1] During the 2012–13 season, LeBlanc was traded by the Blackhawks to the Washington Capitals for future considerations in AHL contracted player Matt Beaudoin on January 31, 2013.[2]

In July 2013, LeBlanc was re-signed by the Capitals to a one-year, two-way contract. He was reassigned to AHL affiliate, the Hershey Bears, for the duration of the 2013–14 season, scoring 12 goals and 28 points in 65 games. LeBlanc was recalled by the Capitals and made his NHL debut in their final regular season game in a 1-0 shootout defeat by the Tampa Bay Lightning on April 13, 2014.[3]

As a pending free agent, LeBlanc opted to sign his first European contract on a one-year deal with Swedish club, Rögle BK of the HockeyAllsvenskan on June 12, 2014.[4] In the 2014–15 season, LeBlanc was unable to contribute to his expectations with 18 points in 50 contests. LeBlanc opted to remain in Europe the following season, signing with top flight Finnish outfit, HPK of the Liiga.

Following a single season with HPK as a depth forward in 2015–16, LeBlanc opted to return to North America, signing a one-year deal with the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL on September 14, 2016.[5]
