The career of Louis Leblanc in the national hockey League only lasted 50 games. Even if the former choice first round in 2009, Montreal Canadians, has not had the career that he wished, it does not stop him to live his life around hockey, a sport he loves still.
Leblanc has opened up in a letter, Tuesday, published on the website of Radio-Canada in which he empties his heart. And the exercise had done him the greatest good.
“It has removed a bit of weight on my shoulders. So far, I’ve only had positive feedback about the letter that I have written,” stressed Leblanc, Wednesday morning, upon the issuance of The Runners on TVA Sports.
And Leblanc, in spite of the moments instead of the negative through which it has passed, is able to take the positive of all its experience.
“It was an incredible time, he pointed out about his selection in 2009, at the Bell Centre. I’ll remember all my life. It was a very special day for me and my family. You think of all the sacrifices that you made during your career, your life. It is something that will stay with me all my life. These are moments very much appreciated that I was able to share with my loved ones, my friends and then my family.”
Leblanc has evolved to the team of Harvard University before making the leap into the QMJHL with the Junior de Montréal in 2010-2011; a difficult decision for him.
“I don’t have a regret really, said Leblanc, who has now 28 years old and is the assistant coach for the hockey team of his alma mater. It is safe with the benefit of hindsight, do you have more information and experience. Yes may be that was a third year, maybe a fourth year, I would have been more ready for my professional debut.
“With the benefit of hindsight, at the time, it was the right decision with the information that I had. I have lived beautiful moments with the Canadians, with the Junior de Montréal, I made the world Championship less than 20 years. (But) Yes, it has not finished as I would have liked.”
And with all this hindsight, Leblanc continues to believe that the CH did not make a mistake by selecting it.
“I know what I was capable of offering, said Leblanc, who only a few months before getting his degree from Harvard University. I know what kind of player I was. My career has proven this. I have not been able to prove it in the national League for a long time, but I know that I deserved my place.”
