MONTREAL -- The Montreal Canadiens traded forward Louis Leblanc to the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday in exchange for a conditional fifth-round selection in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. Leblanc had 10 points (five goals and five assists) in 50 career games with Montreal. The 23-year-old from Pointe-Claire, Que., made his NHL debut with the Canadiens in 2011-12, leading team rookies in goals and ranking second in scoring. He appeared in eight games for Montreal in 2013-14, going scoreless with a +1 rating and four penalty minutes. Leblanc recorded 68 points (34 goals, 34 assists) and had 146 penalty minutes in 163 American Hockey League regular season games with the Hamilton Bulldogs. "After three seasons with the Canadiens organization we felt that moving forward, the best option for Louis and our organization was to give him the opportunity to pursue his career with another team," said Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin. "Throughout his entire stay with our organization Louis showed great professionalism and a constant desire to improve. We thank him for his contribution and wish him success for the continuation of his career." Leblanc was selected by Montreal in the first round (18th overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.

The tickets went on sale Dec. 30 and are selling fast, said Pat McEleney, executive director of the 2015 and 2017 world juniors, which will both be held in Montreal and Toronto. "Were excited about where we are," said McEleney. Hockey Canada is looking to set attendance records and reap record profits by holding the event in Canadas two largest cities. In 2015, Canada will play its round-robin games as well as a quarter-final at the 21,273-seat Bell Centre before moving to the 18,819-seat Air Canada Centre in Toronto for the medal round. Toronto will also host the five-team round-robin group that Canada is not in. Canada will start the 2017 event in Toronto, with the other group and the medal round in Montreal. They hope to fill the rinks for games Canaada is not involved in as well.ddddddddddddTicket package holders who dont want to use some games can re-sell or donate the tickets back to organizers for resale or distribution to minor hockey teams. Sales of those tickets are expected to begin in the fall. "Its important to us to have full buildings," said McEleney. "Its important to the event and to other teams coming to Canada." He said they hope to make at least $22 million in profit in 2015, which will be used to fund hockey programs across the country. Co-hosts Calgary and Edmonton set the world junior attendance record of 444,718 in 2012 and earned $21 million in profit. Sales have been slower in Montreal because the medal round tends to sell more quickly than round-robin games, said Marie-Christine Boucher, general manager for the Montreal side of the event. "Were very happy about the numbers right now," she said. ' ' '
